Ingolstadt-based luxury carmaker, Audi, has introduced new nomenclature for all its models on sale in India. The first car in its range to get the new nomenclature was the recently introduced A3, they call it the Dynamic badging.
The new nomenclature for the sedans is as follows – A8L with a 4.2-litre diesel engine gets the 60 TDI and the petrol gets 60 TFSI badges. The badges vary even for a model with a same engine with different power outputs like the Q3 with a 2.0-litre diesel engine gets two badges 30 and 35 TDI.
This new nomenclature will replace the current pattern which mentions the engine capacity with a TDI or a TFSI badge.
The calculation behind these new badges is a little complicated, for the badges differ with the level of G-force created under acceleration. To put it simply a bigger/powerful engine will accelerate hard creating more downforce under acceleration, in short, faster Audis get higher badging.
