VW T-Roc facelift gets more efficient 1.5 TSI Evo2 engine

Volkswagen's 1.5 TSI evo2 brings improved efficiency and reduced pollutants.

The cleaner engine will be implemented in the facelifted T-Roc and T-Roc Cabriolet SUVs, then in other VW Group cars.

The 1.5-liter four-cylinder TSI evo2 engine makes 148 horsepower, the same as before. VW claimed other models with varied power outputs will follow. The 1.5 TSI evo2 plug-in hybrid produces 268 horsepower (200 kW / 272 PS).

The engine is also compatible with "renewable fuels," indicating a CNG-powered TGI variant. VW didn't mention emissions and fuel consumption reductions over the 1.5 TSI.

Three-way catalytic converter and petrol particulate filter are now in one engine-mounted module. This reduces precious metal use and makes the engine compatible with Euro 7 emission requirements.

ACTPlus improves activation/deactivation of the two cylinders when full power is not needed. The two-cylinder mode's combustion process has been enhanced for longer runs.

The Miller-cycle engine uses TSI-evo combustion, although chamber cooling has been improved. It has a variable turbocharger, high-pressure injection, and pistons with cooling ducts.

Thomas Ulbrich, VW's technical development board member, said, "The 1.5 TSI is a crucial pillar of the Volkswagen engine range because it powers many vehicles globally, from the T-Cross to the Passat Variant."

We've improved the four-cylinder engine. It has improved fuel economy and responsiveness.

Active Cylinder Management ACTplus, a close-to-the-engine emission control module, and the current TSI-Evo combustion process highlight the latest version.

The EA 211 engine family was introduced in 2012, with the evo generation debuting in 2016 and the evo2 in 2022. Volkswagen makes 4 million engines a year at 11 facilities.
