The German automaker has confirmed that the most important parts of the engine have been upgraded, including the cast-iron block, the valve springs, the aluminum-alloy pistons and cylinder head.

The new TSI engine will run on VW’s unique Miller combustion cycle in order to facilitate the driving in all conditions. Another striking feature of this new engine is the modern valve timing system on the intake camshaft, which can lengthen the time of fuel load.
