EA211 or VW R4 engines

The VW EA211 family of 4-cylinder engines was first introduced in 2011 and has almost completely replaced the old line of EA111 power units from all markets. Usually they are divided into three series: atmospheric MPi, turbocharged TSI and new EVO turbo engines.

EA211 MPI engines

In 2011, in the European market, outdated EA111 motors were replaced by new EA211 units. The first 1.0-liter versions had only 3 cylinders and were equipped with distributed injection.

  • CHYA (12v, injector, 60 hp / 95 Nm);
  • CHYB (12v, injector, 75 hp / 95 Nm).

In some markets, atmospheric power units of this family appeared only in 2014, but in a more classic form: with 4 cylinders and a volume of 1.6 liters.

  • CWVA (16v, injector, 110 hp / 155 Nm);
  • CWVB (16v, injector, 90 hp / 155 Nm).

The main difference from its predecessor in the form of the popular CFNA unit was the return to a timing belt drive instead of a flimsy chain, as well as the appearance of a phase shifter on the intake. A serious disadvantage was the combination of the exhaust manifold with the cylinder head, now it cannot be replaced.

EA211 TSI engines

In 2012, it’s time to update the small turbo engines with direct fuel injection. The 1.2-liter unit retained the block, but received a 16-valve cylinder head and an intake dephaser. As well as on atmospheric engines, the timing chain drive has given way to a belt here.

  • CJZA (16v, direct injection, 105 hp / 175 Nm);
  • CJZB (16v, direct injection, 86 hp / 160 Nm).

Around the same time, the generation was replaced by a larger 1.4-liter turbo engine. The 16-valve cylinder head was earlier, a timing belt and a second phase regulator appeared in powerful versions.

But the cylinder block in 1.4-liter power units is already completely different: cast iron has given way to aluminum and the configuration has changed, the piston has decreased, and its stroke has become longer.

  • CHPA (16v, direct injection, 140 hp / 250 Nm);
  • CMBA (16v, direct injection, 122 hp / 200 Nm);
  • CXSA (16v, direct injection, 122 hp / 200 Nm);
  • CZCA (16v, direct injection, 125 hp / 200 Nm);
  • CZDA (16v, direct injection, 150 hp / 250 Nm);
  • CZEA (16v, direct injection, 150 hp / 250 Nm);
  • DJKA (16v, direct injection, 150 hp / 250 Nm).

The newest representatives of the series are 3-cylinder 1.0-liter turbo engines. Like their atmospheric counterparts, they are rarely found anywhere, but in Europe it is a bestseller.

  • CHZA (12v, direct injection, 90 hp / 160 Nm);
  • CHZB (12v, direct injection, 95 hp / 160 Nm).

EA211 EVO engines

In 2016, a new generation of EA211 power units called EVO was introduced. So far, it has only two representatives with a volume of 1.5 liters, but in the future there should be more of them.

  • DACA (16v, direct injection, 130 hp / 200 Nm);
  • DADA (16v, direct injection, 150 hp / 250 Nm).

Engine Volkswagen CWVA

The 1.6-liter Volkswagen CWVA 1.6 MPI gasoline engine was introduced in 2014 as the most simple and inexpensive engine for developing countries.
