Why such a large oil capacity 2.0T

I was wondering why the 2.0T has such a large oil capacity versus my Saab 9-5 with the 2.3t...? Figured someone would know...

Cooling, longer life, more odds of it not running out if it burns a little. Was needed for the 10K intervals. Along with special oil.

I bet there is a lot of experience to back that lack of faith

Almost all new model cars are going to larger capacity oil sumps and longer drain intervals, the V6 B284 in the 9-3 Aero takes almost 7 quarts of oil.

Old air cooled Porches have something like a 16 quart capacity depending on which cooler setup it comes with, and like 13-14 drains out when you change it. Makes for a pricey oil change, but you get the idea.

One of my BMWs required just over 6 quarts, and the other is nearly 8 quarts. Both are 2.5 liter motors. The factory OCI is 15,000 miles. You'll want plenty of oil in the car when going with a 15k OCI (I change at 7500-8000 miles)

Correct me if I'm wrong (but I'm pretty sure I'm not) the 2.0L is 6.3 Qts...

Oh and on Porsches, my dad's 928 takes 9 Qts...

It's something like that, and oil and filter change takes about exactly 6 quarts on re-fill, so with the extra oil left hanging out in there it's 6.3-6.5, something like that.
