Welcome to the 12th International Engine of the Year Awards. This years Awards are the biggest yet, with the jury panel featuring 72 of the worlds most respected motoring journalists from 35 countries, bringing with them a wealth of experience and knowledge of todays advanced passenger car, SUV and MPV engines. New members to this years panel include Adil Jal Darukhanawala, editorin-chief at The Times Group of India; Jason Cammisa, West Coast editor of Automobile in the USA; Richard Kajornsak Leu, motoring editor at the Bangkok Post in Thailand; and Yves Maroselli, who has such outlets in France as Le Figaro and LAutomobile. For 2010, the winning combination for engines appears to be good fuel economy balanced with performance. Lower-displacement units have dominated proceedings. Indeed, turbocharging, electric motors, and direct injection have become crucial technologies that gained many votes from judges around the world. One of the highlights this year came in the New Engines category, with more new powertrains being launched in the last 12 months than

ever before in the Awards 12-year history. In fact, no fewer than 66 new engines had to be assessed for this years Awards, with a number of strong and innovative contenders determined to take on the might of the established, and predominantly German, class leaders. As the votes poured in, two Italian units went head-to-head to contest best New Engine 2010. Turn to page 12 to discover the outcome. One of the closest fought categories for this year was the 1-litre to 1.4-litre class, where VWs TSI Twincharger heart had to do battle with its stable mate, the 1.2-litre TSI unit, as well as Fiats innovative 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo engine. Equally closely fought this year was the overall award, with VW who won the accolade last year facing stiff competition from a plethora of advanced engines. So which engine impressed the jury the most and took the most coveted International Engine of the Year 2010 title? The unit in question not only offers power, but also ticks boxes when it comes to total emissions reduction and fuel economy improvement.

tHe innovAtive engine drAsticALLy cuts eMissions

tHe turbo MuLtiAir HeArt is good For 155bHp

Fiats MultiAir, the single most innovative engine technology to appear in the past 12 months, has been rewarded by the Awards judging panel with the title of Best New Engine of 2010. MultiAir employs an electrohydraulic system to independently control each cylinders inlet air charge. Depending on the driving situation, there are five main modes of inlet valve timing and lift, but in principle MultiAir enables infinitely variable control of the inlet valves. The system is particularly special because it is able to increase power and torque while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. The concept is therefore ideal for todays world of eco-conscious, downsized automotive powertrains. Fiat Powertrain Technologies, which has developed and patented the system, claims that, compared with a traditional petrol engine of the same displacement, a MultiAir unit brings up to 10% more power and 15% more torque, while improving fuel

economy by up to 10% and reducing emissions, whether they be CO2 (-10%), particulate matter (-40%) or NOx (-60%). Taking as an example the 170bhp variant of the winning 1.4-litre turbo engine, which appears in the Alfa MiTo Cloverleaf, Alfa claims 6 l/100km (47mpg) on the combined cycle for the 170bhp unit, which is more than half a litre less than the previous 155bhp, non-MultiAir engine. A start/ stop system also helps cut fuel consumption levels. The judges were predictably enamoured with a system that offers such impressive benefits. Fiats MultiAir gives traditional internal combustion a breath of fresh air via an entirely new set of valvetrain strategies, was the verdict of respected technical journalist, Dennis Simanaitis of Road & Track. Fiat plans to roll MultiAir out across additional engine families. Next to benefit will be the eagerly anticipated two-cylinder turbo, which is on track to offer an astonishing 105bhp!

The Third-geNeraTioN prius boasTs more power

The New hYbrid uNiT has beeN added To The auris

Now in its 13th year, the Prius has been a regular feature in the International Engine of the Year Awards since its launch. And 2010 has seen another podium finish for Toyotas hybrid technology, thanks to further improvements to the 1.8-litre drivetrain, as well as its fitment in a further model, the Auris. As John Carey from Wheels Magazine stated: More powerful, polished and parsimonious, the latest, thoroughly redesigned version of Toyotas iconic hybrid drivetrain is better in every way that counts. This latest version features a larger and more powerful 1.8-litre Atkinsoncycle and a four-cylinder engine that produces 98hp at 5,200rpm in the new, award-winning Prius. Together with its electric motor, the hybrid system generates a combined 134 net horsepower, an improvement of 24bhp over the previous generation. The new, larger engine enhances improve performance and also helps improve highway mileage. The 2010 Prius can accelerate from zero to 60

mph in 9.8 seconds. By producing greater torque, the new engine can run at lower average rpm on the highway, thereby using less fuel. In the Prius, Toyota has extended its record of continuous improvement in fuel economy, with the models fuel efficiency having gone from 6.89 l/100km (41mpg) in the first generation, to 6.1 l/100km (46mpg) in the second-generation, to now an EPA combined 5.65 l/100km (50mpg) in the latest incarnation. Use of an electric water pump and a new exhaust gas recirculation system also contributes to the engines efficiency. The 1.8-litre engine is the first Toyota powerplant that requires no accessory drive belts, helping enhance powertrain efficiency and also potentially reducing maintenance costs. As Jack Yamaguchi, an International freelance journalist, said that the powertrain is the essence of mechanical, electric and electrical ingenuity in one affordable package, obtaining outstanding results.

the amg heart produCeS 525Bhp and 630nm

the v8 unIt haS Been added to the C-ClaSS eState

In 2009, the Best performance engine category was one of the closest-fought in the whole of the International Engine of the Year Awards. In 2010, the winner is the same the Mercedes-AMG 6.2-litre powerhouse but its margin of victory has increased five-fold from 19 points to 105. Its a crushing performance from an engine that specialises in, er, crushing performance! In its most highly tuned form, as seen in AMG versions of the S-, SL-, CL- and E-Class models, this naturally aspirated V8 produces 525bhp and 630Nm of torque enough to ensure acceleration from 0-100km/h in a rapid 4.6 seconds. When the engine is combined with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sevenspeed sports transmission, partial suppression of individual cylinders by interrupting ignition and injection during gearshifts under full load leads to considerably faster shift times as little as 100 milliseconds in manual mode.

Cutting-edge technology is employed to ensure this highrevving, large-displacement beast is as efficient as possible. In the case of the E 63 AMG version, for example, despite 11bhp of additional output versus the preceding model, the fuel consumption has been improved to 12.6 l/100km (22.4mpg) on the NEDC combined cycle, a reduction of 1.6 l/100km (1.76mpg). This progress has been made possible by a package of measures including on-demand delivery of fuel and generator management with recuperation of braking energy on the overrun. Friction is also reduced by the AMG-exclusive twin-wire arc spray coating process used on the cylinder walls. It all adds up to a dominant display of power and efficiency from AMG, and another trophy for the cabinet. Perhaps the 6.2 will only be toppled from within: its creators are soon to launch a 5.5-litre, 571bhp biturbo V8, which will reduce fuel consumption in the S 63 by 25%!

For the fourth year on a trot, Toyota has won the sub-litre category with its three-cylinder urban heart, once again beating the Smart diesel engine, which this year finished 54 points behind its Japanese counterpart (in 2009, the Daimler diesel was some 102 points off first place in this category class!) Explaining why so many judges from all corners of the planet backed Toyotas urban heart yet again, Dutch-based journalist, Jeroen Jongeneel from the De Telegraaf, summed up: Toyotas three-cylinder engine is still the one to beat in this category class, but other designs are coming close, like the Opel Twinport powertrain. Weighing in at just 67kg which makes it one of the lightest automotive engines ever to be developed the compact 993cc unit has been installed in a range of vehicles from four different car makers. Weight-saving technologies applied include an all-aluminium construction, an extra-small cylinder

bore-to-bore distance and the innovative use of a resin throttle body and fuel delivery pipe. Marking a first for Toyota was the approach to the intake system and engine cover, which for the three-cylinder powertrain is integrated into a single, compact design. As a result, in a typical Toyota Aygo model, the eco-friendly threecylinder ensures an ultra-efficient fuel consumption rating of 4 litres/ 100km (62mpg), while emitting a mere 109g/km of CO2. But the need to be green in an urban environment has been coupled with impressive performance. Its advanced variable valve timing system optimises timing to deliver 67bhp. As well as being frugal, the Toyota engine is ideal for urban driving, ensuring its application has speedy acceleration a must for city cars, especially when needing to get away at mini roundabouts. The 93Nm of torque that comes good at 3,600rpm is also particularly helpful when needing to accelerate in urban areas.

For my money, theres still no better way to eliminate turbo lag while maintaining high-speed boost. This engine is a worthy winner
Frank Marcus, Motor Trend
Having been triumphant in this class for the last four years, VWs TSI Twincharger engine faced major competition this year in the form of Fiats innovative MultiAir technology, the new 1.3-litre hybrid powertrain in the Honda Insight and VWs own 1.2litre TSI unit that somehow churns out 105bhp. But as the votes rolled in, it soon became apparent that these three powertrains were mere pretenders to the crown, with the TSI comfortably winning the 1-litre to 1.4-litre class once again. A frugal 1.4-litre engine, TSI Twincharger can deliver up to 178bhp in certain applications due to the combination of petrol direct injection, a turbocharger and a supercharger. Low-end torque is ensured at low speeds by the mechanically driven supercharger. The turbocharger takes over at higher speeds once the intake air is pressurised, filling the hole in the torque at low revs, and blessing the diminutive engine with the sort of power usually associated with a 2-litre naturally-aspirated unit. The ambitious power output targets could not be achieved with a single-stage supercharged or turbocharged 1,400cc engine alone, but with this combination, the upstream compressor increases the boost pressure of the exhaust turbocharger to impressive levels. The turbo and the supercharger have a pressure rating of 1.53 bar, and the maximum system boost pressure is set at 2.5 bar at 1,500rpm. Power is only half the story, as the innovative TSI engine offers fuel economy benefits over its larger, similarly powered rivals, returning fuel consumption figures in the new-generation Volkswagen Golf of around 6.2 l/100km (45.5mpg), compared with 10.6 l/100km (26.6mpg) for Volkswagens 2-litre FSI, which is of comparable performance and power output. As Nikos Kounitis of 4Wheels said, Supercharger combined with turbo, fuel efficiency combined with performance; a brilliant idea with an exciting result in fuel economy.

Few engines fit the character of their subcompact host vehicles as well as this cheeky, go-getter of a turbo does
Frank Markus, Motor Trend
BMW and PSA Peugeot Citron continue to reap the rewards from their jointly developed 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine, which, having taken top honours in its category class once again, extends its winning dominance to four years. In winning this Award, perhaps the most notable thing is that this innovative German/ French collaboration has once again beaten the third-generation Toyota Prius hybrid. Gabor Szecsenyi, from Russias Autoreview, was one of the judges who gave the Mini Cooper S heart top marks: This engine is very usable even in its most powerful form. Its a real two-in-one piece of engineering: flexible for everyday use, but super sporty on track days. A winning powertrain combination. Meanwhile, Italian-based journalist Lorenzo Facchinetti also awarded the BMW/PSA engine top marks: The nice thing about the 1.6-litre turbo is that it retains its awesome character, despite what end application its used in. Featuring innovative stop/start technology on BMW models, jurors from all regions were once again won over by this powerful yet frugal motor, with points coming in from Asia, South America and North America, as well as Europe. Few engines fit the character of their subcompact host vehicles as well as this cheeky, go-getter of a turbo does, said Frank Markus, from Motor Trend in the USA. Made from light alloy, the 175bhp unit, which powers not only the Cooper S but also the Mini Clubman and Peugeot 207 and 308 models, features a twin-scroll turbocharger, gasoline direct injection, twin overhead camshafts, roller-type drag arms that have been optimised for minimum friction, and hydraulic valve play-compensation elements. All this means not only plenty of power lets not forget the 260Nm that is maintained from 1,500rpm to 5,000rpm but also an average fuel consumption of 6.9 l/100km (0.9mpg for non-stop/start engines. 0.9mpg

The engIne block Is consTrucTeD from alumInIum

The second twin-turbo victory for BMW in this years International Engine of the Year Awards, the 2-litre powertrain, is the worlds first fourcylinder engine with variable twin turbocharger technology. This powertrain is finding fans around the world, and one such is Carl Cunanan from the Philippines, who said, The engine that made gasoline-only buyers sit up and take notice is now proving its mettle, both on the road and at the filling station. This small yet punchy diesel from Bavaria uses two different-sized turbos deployed sequentially to dispense extra power right across the rev range. At lower revs, the small turbocharger works on its own to provide instantaneous throttle response, thus eliminating lag. Third-generation common rail injection ensures high performance of 204bhp, in hand with a fuel consumption levels of 5.5 l/100km (51.3mpg) and CO2 emissions of 138g/km. Such expert engineering amounts to power output per litre of

over 100hp. And thanks to the entire engine block now being made solely of aluminium, total weight is reduced by 20kg. Even venerable competitors, such as Audis 2-litre TFSI heart, and high-performance units including Hondas screaming 2-litre i-VTEC and Mitsubishis 295bhp 2-litre turbo, didnt come close to BMWs 2-litre diesel in the jurys eyes. One fan was Dave VanderWerp from Car and Driver in the USA, who stated the engine is: the most responsive, linear and eager-to-rev diesel that Ive ever driven. Plus it returns impressive fuel economy. Matt Davis, an international freelancer with outlets such as AutoExpress in the UK, also enthused: Stunning how much this small-capacity diesel feels like the best V6 gas engine ever built. With praise from around the world, the message is clear: engines like this truly make one wonder how much better diesel technology can possibly become in the future.

Tremendous power, great sound. This is five-cylinder architecture at its best


Nikos Kounitis, 4Wheels

TT rs races TO 100Km/h iN a mere 4.7 secONds

The five-cyliNder TurbO eNgiNe bOasTs 340bhp

Once again this class was an exciting battle between two state-of-the-art engines. But this year it was the fivecylinder Audi turbo in the TT RS that emerged victorious over the 2009 winner, the Mercedes 2.1-litre, fourcylinder diesel. The 2.5-litre Audi unit is one of the most characterful on the market, with a soundtrack reminiscent of the quattros 1980s rally heyday. Indeed, so distinctive is the noise, that in the UK, Audi commissioned a music track composed entirely from sounds made by the 340bhp engine! But theres more to this sonorous motor than pure nostalgia. For a start its very flexible, with a flat torque curve delivering the 450Nm peak all the way from 1,600rpm to beyond 5,000rpm. It also features directinjection to help the TT RS, whether in coupe or roadster form, deliver impressive economy alongside its scintillating performance: 9.2 l/100km (30.7mpg) on the combined cycle from a car that will accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in a mere

4.7 seconds and tops out at a governed 250km/h top level. For customers who want even more performance, quattro GmbH will electronically raise the permitted maximum to 280km/h, while pushing the Sport button to open a flap in the left exhaust tailpipe allows the evocative soundtrack to be heard in its full glory. The five can also be mated with Audis new seven-speed S tronic dualclutch transmission. It enables the driver to choose between two automatic modes, or shift manually using the selector lever or shift paddles on the steering wheel. A launch control function offers nighon perfect acceleration from a standing start, with maximum turbo power and minimal wheelspin. Its a package that had the jury swooning. Taking an old blueprint and renewing it so convincingly is very exciting, said judge Matt Davis, while Yves Maroselli concluded: Torque, power, a beautiful sound this engine has it all.

BMWs holdout in-line six is still the gold standard for power delivery and response

the 2,979CC engine is Made froM Light aLLoy

With 400nM of torque, the di unit drives the x6

the straight-six unit deLivers More than 300Bhp

Last year saw BMW dominate the top two positions in this category a feat it has repeated this year with the same contenders. Again, the 3-litre DI twin turbo has the edge on its diesel sibling, with its classic in-line six configuration charming the jury. As John Carey from Wheels Magazine stated, Punching well above its capacity division, this downsizing trendsetter hasnt been bettered in my opinion. Great power delivery, superb refinement and not too thirsty. Offering 306bhp from its light alloy and magnesium straight-six engine, the engine can accelerate a 1-Series coupe from zero to 62mph in 5.3 seconds before going on to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. Peak torque of 400Nm from just 1,300rpm through to 5,000rpm ensures smooth yet rapid progress and in-gear flexibility. Jason Cammisa, West Coast editor of Automobile Magazine in the USA, was similarly impressed: With refinement that no V6 engine can

match, BMWs holdout in-line six is still the gold standard for power delivery and response not to mention efficiency. Courtesy of high-precision direct injection for the most efficient burn of fuel mix, and Bi-VANOS variable valve technology, combined with lightweight engineering principles, the engine ensures frugal motoring while maintaining its top-end performance. The 2,979cc engine posts a 9.2 l/100km (30.7mpg) figure on the combined cycle and a CO2 emissions figure of 220g/km. This engine, and indeed its diesel equivalent, have beaten off some stiff competition, including the popular 3-litre diesel unit favoured by Jaguar, Ford, Land Rover and PSA; Audis venerable 3-litre diesel; and Porsches characterful 2.9-litre flat-six. Such company really shows the quality of this powerplant. One of Turkeys leading automotive journalists, Halit Bolkan, said that this BMW engine is a typical Munich-made miracle.

Its been a triumphant couple of months for BMW V8s. The M3s S65 powerplant has once again won its class at the International Engine of the Year Awards, just a matter of weeks after its close relation, the motorsport-specific P65, brought the M3 GT2 home in first place at the gruelling Nrburgring 24 hours. Just like in that race at the Green Hell, the BMW has fought off a strong Porsche challenge to take the title. This latest Award is the third straight category win for the M3s wet-sump, 4-litre motor, which is equipped with a quad-VANOS variable timing system. Operated from engine oil pressure, this technology provides continuous adjustability of all four cams. The unit tips the scales at 202kg: lighter, and more than 30mm shorter than the legendary straightsix engine it replaced. Further technical highlights include an alternator that disconnects from the engine during acceleration to maximise power, only charging the

battery during braking whenever possible, in a system BMW calls Brake Energy Regeneration. The engine features a separate throttle butterfly for each cylinder, with two stepper motors operating them on each row of cylinders. This gives the BMW M engine a particularly sensitive response at low speeds together with an immediate reaction whenever the driver presses the accelerator. The prodigious power output 420bhp at 8,250rpm is carefully managed by a Cosworth Pectel SQ6M ECU. Its that scintillating performance that had the judges purring. One of the most involving engines, bar none, enthused Dave VanderWerp of Car and Driver. Customers will soon be able to get their hands on a further creation of the V8 in the forthcoming M3 GTS. In this orangeonly, lightweight special, the motor will be stroked from 75.2mm to 82mm to deliver a capacity increase to 4.4-litres and 30 additional horsepower.

The perfect embodiment of a hot-rod German V8, AMGs high-rpm screamer single handedly turns elegant sedans into maniacal demons
Jason Cammisa, Automobile Magazine
This is the second consecutive victory for the worlds most powerful naturally aspirated production V8 powertrain, and its clear to see (and hear) why. Revving to a screaming 7,200rpm, the all-aluminium 6,208cc powerhouse develops a 525bhp, 630Nm punch, clearly showing AMGs motorsport roots. This remarkable engine owes its character to its lightweight, rigid closed-deck crankcase and its cylinder walls with revolutionary LDS coating, as well as valve gear with bucket-type tappets in the cylinder heads for high engine speeds. Together with the variable intake manifold with two integrated throttle flaps, the flow-optimised intake and exhaust ducts ensure perfect cylinder charging and high output. The result is high-revving thrills coupled with immense low-down torque, ensuring agility and responsiveness. 0-60 comes in a mere 4.6 seconds. The jury has been captivated by this engines charms, especially Jason Cammisa, West Coast Editor at Automobile Magazine in the USA. He stated, The perfect embodiment of a hot-rod German V8, AMGs high-rpm screamer singlehandedly turns elegant sedans into maniacal demons. Very fast maniacal demons. Rivals have tried and failed to woo the judges with some deeply impressive engines in this category, including Jaguars supercharged 5-litre V8, BMWs 5-litre V10 and 4.4-litre turbo, Lamborghinis 5.2-litre V10, and Porsches 4.8-litre V8 turbo. However, they have all been shouted down by the Affalterbach V8 even Ferraris screaming 570bhp 4.5-litre V8 only managed a distant second. This is the final hurrah for AMGs 6.2 though, with a 5.5-litre twinturbo V8 waiting in the wings its first application coming in the new S AMG sedan. The new unit will satisfy growing demands for greater fuel economy and lower emissions, but AMG promises there will be no compromise with power. AMG could be the one to watch again next year.

TSI Twincharger engine is the epitome of the modern, frugal, light, high-tech, small-but-powerful petrol engine. Theres good low-end torque and plentiful mid-range power
Peter Nunn, international freelance journalist
By winning the overall International Engine of the Year Award for the second consecutive year, VWs innovative TSI Twincharger has proved its no one-hit wonder. In fact, only two other engines throughout the 12-year history of the International Engine of the Year Awards have won the overall award back-to-back: first BMWs 5-litre V10 heart in 2005 and 2006, and then the Bavarian car makers 3-litre twin turbo unit, which was victorious in 2007 and 2008. So, Wolfsburgs TSI Twincharger joins an exclusive club, but it had to work hard to gain membership, beating the 2007 and 2008 champion by only 19 points in this years race. Like last year, VWs 1.4-litre unit managed to gather points from markets outside Europe, with judges in North America, Asia and South America all awarding top marks. Last years IEOTY is still the most accurate, efficient pointer to the future of petrol power. It was an easy choice, said Australian-based motoring journalist Bill McKinnon. Canadian Jim Kenzie was equally impressed: The VW Twincharger engine remains the best combination of various technologies to produce high power with low emissions and fuel consumption. The four-cylinder combines a turbocharger and supercharger in one compact unit. The result is power of up to 178bhp, but whats most impressive is the engines specific power that attains 127.1bhp per litre of displacement. And with 240Nm of torque coming good at 1,500rpm, its easy to see why the jurors that look for performance and sporty characteristics were impressed. But power is just part of the story for this years International Engine of the Year. The TSI derivative mated to VWs DSG system emits 144g CO2/ km, and in a Golf application, while fuel consumption is rated at 6.2 l/100km (45.5mpg). With those figures, its little wonder that TSI twincharger yet won.
