The difference between the VW T6 TDI340 and TDI400

Getting a new VW T6 and don’t know what all the jargon is about? Hopefully we can help!

Background: the 2.0Litre turbo-diesel engine is available in two ‘output level’s’ (VW calls them ‘output levels’ but from what I can ascertain this relates to the amount of power in the engine).

The TDI340, 103kw, 340Nm

Average fuel consumption from 7.2L/100km.

The Bi-turbo TDI400, 132kw, 400Nm.

Average fuel consumption from 7.6L/100km.

Basically, the TDI400 has an extra turbo giving it more power, which means it also uses a TINY bit more diesel.

Which do you need for your campervan? Either! The TDI340 is perfectly fine. “You would get the TDI400 if you want some extra “oomph””. (straight from the mouth of our VW contact!)
