Audi Announces New Naming System
Audi will begin to roll out a new naming system for their powertrains. The two digit system will represent the car's horsepower or kilowatts. For example, an Audi vehicle that has between 110 to 131 horsepower will be named 30. Engines with 230 to 252 horsepower will be named 45. The highest number available is 70, which is for engines that produce over 544hp. So if you were looking at a 252hp A4, it would be called an 'A4 45,' instead of 'A4 2.0T.'
While this change was announced as a 'global' change, Audi USA representatives have not confirmed that we will see these changes in the United States.
