Over 600 horsepower to the wheels with a turbo upgrade? Yep. It's the kind of motor we love here that not only offers great out of the box performance but can put out some serious aftermarket power.
So who will take the 2.5 TFSI down? Maybe Audi themselves. Current reports state that the next generation Audi RS3 is testing with a high output 2.0 liter four-cylinder instead of the 2.5 TFSI inline-5. The RS Q3 uses this motor though so it is not going out of production just yet and Audi did state a couple years back they intended to update the 2.5 TFSI engine.
Things have changed since then with AMG releasing the M133 four-cylinder and Audi wants to challenge the AMG motor for the title of most powerful four-cylinder. Hopefully Audi does not abandon the 2.5 TFSI as it truly is the best 2.0 - 2.5 liter engine in production.
