Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI 160 PS DSG Highline (2009)

94In Hague see them like we choose efficient cars all together. That is also tax incentives. The Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI 160 PS DSG is one of the vehicles covered by the new 20 percent addition. Economical driving is not always make do!

The Volkswagen engine is the perfect example of downsizing. For example, the 1.4 TSI makes us miss the 2.0 FSI for some years a moment ago. A mechanical compressor and delivers turbo together ensure that the engine with a relatively modest engine capacity anyway nice 160 hp and 240 Nm! And when promised by the manufacturer average consumption of 6.0 liters per 100 kilometers. Get your same engine with manual gearbox, the fuel consumption and higher thrust engine is more

140 grams of CO2 per kilometer. You pay as a business user the full amount of addition. The new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is fully trained in economical driving. State-ie in D, the technique does not know how fast the bucket already must be in seven, sometimes at 60 km / h! The small steps and high torque at low revs make the Gulf runs as economically as possible. Often, you drive with a light humming motor around, with the tachometer around 1,500 rpm. Provide a tikkie gas and the tray is so two lower teeth. There are still people who doubt the

capacities of the Golf 1.4 TSI. Wait till they once acquainted with this wave with the TSI letters on the tailgate, with the S and I are red! For the 1.4 TSI 160 is awfully rap, thanks to the DSG gearbox. On a damp pavement Gulf dashed 8,2 counting from zero to one hundred. At the intermediate sprint is the high torque at low revs up well. We came into this test under cold

conditions out on a fuel consumption of 1: 11.5. That should be better under normal circumstances.

Familiar appearance

The scrawny Golf VI looks tougher than its predecessor, but is still recognizable as a Golf. The VW is about as familiar as the five generations that came before the current model in the 34 years. The dashboard has been increased well: fine materials and deep bells in sleeves. The ergonomics of the interior is top notch. For example, the buttons for the power windows and the mirrors sit high on the door, and close to the steering wheel. The controls for the automatic climate control

Gulf feel great and so is the steering wheel buttons for reading the onboard computer and the audio controls. A big step forward has put VW in terms of dynamics. The current generation Golf is more eager the corner. The steering is more communicative and nose move faster in the direction that you want. The previous Golf was something squishy in this area. But while the chassis has become stiffer. Especially with the 18-inch wheels in size 225 / 40R18 feel very good transverse ridges. The test car had the Dynamic package and thereby hangs the Gulf fifteen millimeters closer over the tarmac and the dampers are stiffer. By default, the Highline has to do with 16-inch aluminum wheels. With front-wheel drive Golf you soon likelihood of wheel spin in wet conditions. The indicator of the traction control linked to the ESP lights up regularly.
