Vw Lupo, the WorldS First 3-Liter Car 2000-01-C044
After the success of the 4-cylinder 1.9-liter TDI and SDI
direct-injection diesel engines in the Passat, Jetta and Polo
classes, a new 3-cylinder TDI has been developed for use in the
"Lupo 3L,' a compact car with a fuel consumption of 3
liters per 100 km.
A new injection system with unit injectors, together with a
fully electronically controlled engine management system featuring
drive-by-wire- technology, a turbocharger with variable turbine
geometry and a fully automated mechanical gearbox and clutch, for
the first time ensures the potential to meet the stringent D4
exhaust emissions level and to achieve excellent fuel economy.
The wheel-torque based engine and gearbox management systems
optimize engine operation in terms of efficiency and emissions.
