V8 TDI Range-topping new diesel engine
Our new 4.2-litre V8 TDI engine generates an impressive 340 PS and 590 lbs ft of torque. Despite its substantial power and torque outputs the new engine is still capable of achieving 31 mpg on the combined cycle while emitting 239 g/km of CO2.
The TDI badge identifies all our diesel-powered models featuring diesel direct injection and a turbocharger, which supplies the engine with fresh air, thereby providing optimum cylinder charging. After compression, the diesel is injected directly into the cylinders at very high pressure by way of a nozzle.
Driving experience is quiet and refined because effective sound insulation keeps noise to a minimum, while hydraulic engine mounts ensure smooth, low-vibration running. The great advantage of TDI engines is that they are very powerful, even at low revs, and economical across the entire speed range.
