New VW Golf GTI Customer review - What Car?

The VW Golf GTI combines strong performance, agile handling and precise
steering with impressive refinement and a supple ride. It's also practical
enough for everyday use and is very classy inside.
Some rivals are faster, the GTI is
expensive to buy and it doesn't look as striking as its cheaper in-house
rival, the Scirocco coupe.

VW TSI ENGINE ANIMATION
Following the success of its TDI and FSI engines, Volkswagen is launching
the latest in a line of pioneering inventions with the introduction of TSI
FSI uses the direct injection of petrol into the combustion chamber to
improve efficiency and hence reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Taking
this further, TSI uses -- for the first time ever -- an FSI engine which is
then dual-charged through a combination of an engine driven Supercharger and an Exhaust gas turbocharger arranged in series.
The driving characteristics of the new TSI engine are improved over those
of the current FSI unit. The belt-driven Supercharger operates at the lower engine speeds,
with the turbocharger coming in as
engine speed increases. The result of this is excellent driveability and
performance throughout the range with no turbo lag and high maximum torque.
Key to the TSI's success is that direct injection allows an abnormally high
compression ratio of 10:1 to be used in conjunction with high maximum Boost pressure of up to 2.5 bar
absolute. This enables the relatively small engine to use very high
gearing to provide exceptional fuel efficiency for a petrol engine,
particularly at motorway cruising speeds. As an additional bonus, the TSI
engine provides driver enjoyment, producing high power and torque across a
rev range from 1,000 to 6,500 rpm.
The new TSI engine has a capacity of 1.4-litres (1,390 cc) and produces
either 140 or 170 PS. The 170 PS version has the same peak power as a
conventional 2.3-litre petrol unit but with 20 per cent lower fuel
onsumption, returning 38.2 mpg on the combined cycle. It also produces
impressive torque of 177 lbs ft (240 Nm) from 1,750 through to 4,500 rpm.
All TSI engines drive through a manual six-speed gearbox. A DSG automatic
option is also available with the 170 PS engine. This will be offered later
in the year with the 140 PS unit.
TSI technology has already received international acclaim, having been
named Best New Engine of 2006 in the International Engine of the Year
Awards. It also won the 1-litre to 1.4-litre category.
