This engine also debuts a quick start mechanism that improves contact Diesel in cold conditions. Another component in this case already known, is the VGT.
The engine is really good. With it, the A3 pollutes less than previous engines and meets long with the specifications of the EU-IV standard.
In addition, much faster (one 0-100km / h in 9.4 seconds), it is fast (207 km / h top speed) and spends little. It is true that, thinking of his antecendentes "family"I could give more of themselves, especially more power, but what gives itself is not inconsiderable. It's not as fast as its predecessor the 147 or 130 hp, but the differences are minimal and perhaps attributable to a higher weight of the newcomer and his long developments.

The lower gears are more appropriate for twisty, there where the frame allows driving fun. For this type of work gives the impression that there is a gap between the second and third. Just one right away and the other seems rather long: it takes to throw and when it starts to do well, and we have to reduce to face another curve. This mismatch contributes to this engine left us a little short when we put it to the side of the frame.
Despite this minimal problem, on balance, we are again at the birth of an intractable opponent. It is true that aesthetic change has been rather shy, but it is also true that dynamic improvements are spectacular. If not convinced for one thing, he will reprove the other, because arguments you can spare.
