Many car enthusiasts believe that the more powerful a vehicle’s engine, the better its performance will be. This is simply not the case. When it comes to outstanding power and effective grace, the 3.0 liter TFSI Supercharged DOHC V6 engine, found in most Audi models, one Volkswagon and two Porche models, is one to be reckoned with.
Engine Standard Features
There are many factors that are considered when experts are evaluating and rating the vehicle engines that are in question. Most recently, a panel of eight experts evaluated and subsequently rated seven aspects and physical features of 44 engines. Out of all 44 engines that had been rated according to these seven characteristics, only one has stood the test of time, making it to at least the top 10 vehicle engines, and that is the 3.0 liter TFSI Supercharged DOHC V6.
The seven important engine characteristics that were considered in this particular evaluation are as follows:
- Fuel economy
- Noise level
- Vibration and Harshness
- Technology involved
- Competition generation
The 3.0 liter TFSI Supercharged DOHC V6 engine is an outstanding performer under the hood of the Audi S5, S4 A6, A7, A8, Q5, Q7, VW Touareg and two Porsche models. When drivers enter and start driving a vehicle that is operated by a V8 engine, there is a noticeable difference that is felt. Due to the V8 like performance of the 3.0 liter TFSI Supercharged DOHC V6 engine, the driver experiences a thrilling, yet smooth ride.
The specific and unique features of the 3.0 liter TFSI Supercharged DOHC V6 engine are:
- 2.995 Displacement
- Aluminum block and head material
- 333 Horsepower
- up to 5,500 rpm

These features would take any given engine to the next performance level. Even though this engine features the power of 333 horses and an impressive 325 pounds of torque per foot, the fuel economy of any vehicle that has the 3.0 liter TFSI Supercharged DOHC V6 engine under its hood is surprisingly efficient with an EPA city/highway of 17/26 miles per gallon.
