The 2.5-liter is going to be re-tuned by the quattro division in order to find extra power. Starting with September 2014, all cars sold in Europe will have to be EU6 compliant, and the turbo five-banger will have to become greener as well.
In a recent interview, quattro development boss Stephan Reil told motoring.com.au that "the five-cylinder engine has to be EU6-compliant and we have to modify it".
Fortunately, there’s no way we’re singing the death of the turbo-5. This engine is a legend with Audi fans and has even been fitted to Audi R8 prototypes.
