According the German manufacturer, the new engine is a development on the current EA288 unit and it is not only more powerful, but also more fuel-efficient.

The 2.0-liter diesel engine comes with a two-stage electrically operated turbocharger and is even more powerful than the current 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine that made its debut on the VW Touareg Facelift.

The new engine is expected to arrive on the production version of the CrossBlue SUV Concept, but the manufacturer didn’t reveal any details regarding the maximum torque generated by its new four-cylinder diesel powerplant.
