The trend of making engines smaller is over, says Herbert Diess, Volkswagen's chairman, marking an end to a decade-long development where engine capacity has been reducing leading to the current vogue for 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engines.
"The trend of downsizing is over," he said at the launch of the new updated version of the Golf – VW's most popular car.
"Emissions tend to go up as engines get smaller," he said, referring to the way that small-capacity engines can perform worse in real world Driving Emissions Tests (RDE) due to be introduced in Europe in 2019 as part of the Worldwide Harmonized Light-duty Vehicles Testing Procedure (WLTP).
Diess says VW will continue with its current 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine for its smaller cars such as the Up and Polo, but it will not be developing smaller petrol engines than that and its diesel units will not be getting smaller than that current 1.6-litre unit, either.
I think that this means that the Environmentalism-driven witch hunt on automobiles is history. No more clown cars for the next 8 years.

Where exactly did you get the conclusion that environmental progress is stopping?

It's possible in the US that emissions and fuel economy standards are going to be stopped or be rolled back, but outside of the US, standards are still advancing quite rapidly - possibly more rapidly in Europe, due to standards changing in response to widespread cheating.

All that means is, the new engines are going to have larger displacement, and less turbocharging.
