1.9 TDI 85 kW
In 1999 pump-nozzle fuel injection technology was also adopted for the 1.9 TDI, as well as a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry and water-cooled exhaust gas recirculation. In this form the four-cylinder engine had a power output of 85 kW (115 hp) and delivered its maximum torque of 285 Nm (210.21 lb-ft) at an engine speed of 1,900 rpm. In the new millennium, versions with power outputs of 74 kW (100 hp) and 96 kW (130 hp) joined the program. This engine, installed in the A3, A4 and A6, sold extremely well and was a true allrounder.
