Self Study Program 511 – The New EA211 Petrol Engine Family

VAG SSP 511. The diagram shows a number of details of the new engines which you will become familiar with over the course of the Self-Study Programme and whose design and function are described.

A new modular strategy has been introduced at Volkswagen with the modular transverse matrix (Modularen Quer Baukasten), or MQB for short. This allows all vehicle modules in the Polo, Golf and Passat classes to use standardised components and modules.

A similar modular strategy is now being launched for petrol engines with the new EA211 petrol engine family. This has been called the EA211 modular petrol engine matrix (Modulare Ottomotoren Baukasten). The engines have a capacity of 1.0 l to 1.6 l. The basic engine is a 1.4 l 103 kW TSI engine.

You can find further information about the new engine family in Self-Study Programmes No. 508 “The 1.0 l 44/55 kW MPI Engine with Intake Manifold Injection” and No. 510 “The Active Cylinder Management ACT in the 1.4 l,103 kW TSI Engine”.
