Volkswagen Twincharger TSI voted "Best New Engine of 2006"
VW's "maximum power - minimum consumption" strategy for the TSI powerplant led to designers using a supercharger for low-range power, and a turbocharger for efficiency at higher rpm. The twincharger system is shown in the drawing at right.
The TSI is currently available in the Golf GT and the Touran.
