VW’s new 2.0 Liter engine for 2018

Last Updated:

The upcoming 2018 Tiguan will use an new 2.0 Liter engine.
It is not replacing the current, more powerful 2.0 Liter found in the GLI and GTI.

This new one seems to be an upgrade from the current 1.8 Liter Turbo.
A 184HP 2.0 Liter.

This new 2.0 would also find its way into the new Jetta coming out in a few months.
As well as pretty much all other VW models currently using the 1.8 Liter.

  1. it's a rework of EA888, not completely new. VW messed around with it enough to make it more fuel efficient and somewhat as powerful as before. Not a bad idea considering how unreliable all-new VW mechanical parts are.

  2. Vince- It's actually a Modified Miller Cycle engine geared toward fuel economy and driveability at the expense of ultimate output. I disagree with the first comment regarding how "unreliable all-new VW mechanical parts are." My personal experience is the opposite.

  3. Thanks for the explanations!
    I've also had experience with VWs. Problems were electric/electronic. Engines were always fine and reliable.
