New engine classification on the Audi range

Audi will now be standardising the engine descriptions on models in the range based on a car's power output. The names of the model series, from the Audi A1 to the Audi Q7, will remain the same but now a combination of two numbers will replace the various type designations previously used. These numbers will stand for the vehicle's power output and will apply to petrol, diesel and e-tron models.

Vehicles will now be classified into different performance levels identified by a two-number combination and this number will appear on the vehicle along with the engine technology - TFSI, TDI or e-tron. The numbers increase in increments of five and will represent the hierarchy within the range. This change should also make it easier to identify engines with more than one power output.

The two digit number is based on the car's kilowatt (kW) power output range as shown in the table below. S, RS and R8 models will all retain the existing naming to reference their position at the top of the Audi range.

The new classifications will come into effect gradually, starting with the all-new Audi A8. All of the range will have adopted the new classifications by the end of 2018.
