The 1.5 TSI evo2 is VW's first gasoline engine vehicle

The 1.5-liter TSI evo2 engine was introduced in the T-Roc Cabrio to improve the EA211's efficiency while reducing pollution.

Engineers modified the engine to achieve the desired goals, including moving the three-way catalytic converter near the engine and combining the gas particulate filter with it.

Additionally, plus is a new active cylinder management system that optimizes the activation and deactivation of both cylinders for smooth engine operation.

In addition to the variable geometry turbocharger and high-pressure injection system, the 1.5 TSI evo2 engine features plasma-coated cylinder walls that reduce friction and cooling channels that reduce piston wear.

The 1.5 TSI evo2 can run on fuels made with renewable components, and it can be equipped with hybrids at various levels, to reach 272 horsepower when equipped with the plug-in hybrid system.

In terms of power, that was also the same as what was available from the 1.0 TSI with turbo-electric, specifically for the Polo WRC model. 

A very popular engine in the Volkswagen line as well as some mass brands have been the EA211, which was launched in 2012. It has 150 horsepower and 25.5 kg / m of torque.

Saveiro is still using the EA211, which comes in three sizes - 1.0, 1.4, and 1.5 liters - along with the 1.6 16V, which has just been updated here.

The 1.5 TSI evo2 engine, as well as the 1.0 MPI, 1.0 TSI, and 1.4 TSI engines follow along with the evo1. Both feature the Miller cycle, which closes high-pressure intake valves early, and TGV technology.

A few models of the EA211 family from Volkswagen will be produced in Brazil at present, including the 1.0 MPI, 1.0 TSI, 1.4 TSI, and 1.6 MSI. A 1.5 TSI will follow soon, but the exact date hasn't been announced yet.
