Self Study Program 920163 – Audi Third Generation 2.0l Engines

Self Study Program 920163 – Audi Third Generation 2.0l Engines PDF. Two new 2.0l engines – representing the next evolutionary step forward – are being introduced by Audi. They derive from the third generation EA888 engine family and are categorized as Generation 3 MLBevo engines.

The 2.0l engines are members of separate performance classes (a European rating system). The main difference between the two engines is in the charge cycle and combustion process.

The Performance class 1 engine is capable of operating on the Miller cycle. The Miller cycle was first patented in 1947. Audi premiered an engine based on the Miller cycle operating principles at the Vienna Motor Symposium in May of 2015. It was hailed as the most fuel efficient gasoline engine in its class.

You may also hear the performance class 1 2.0l engine referred to as the 2.0l Generation 3 BC engine. BC stands for B cycle. B cycle is the Audi term for its technological refinement to the Miller combustion cycle principles. The marketing term for this engine is the 2.0 T ultra engine.

The Performance class 2 is similar in operating principle to the current 2.0l TFSI engine used in the North American market on the 2016 Audi A4. This engine is not a B cycle engine.
