1.9 TDI 81 kW

Versatile

Audi revised the design of the 1.9 TDI in 1995. Power output went up to 81 kW (110 hp) and maximum torque to 225 Nm (165.95 lb-ft), reached now at only 1,700 rpm and remaining constant until 3,000 rpm. The key to this was a variable turbine geometry (VTG) exhaust-driven turbocharger. This powerful four-cylinder TDI was installed in the A4 and A6, and also in the A3 that was launched in 1996.
