Skoda Octavia Facelift Is Getting 1.5 TSI 'Evo' Engine
|   Thursday, February 16, 2017
It seems like Volkswagen isn't ready yet to share its kind-of popular 1.5-liter TSI engine on the Golf Facelift (which now still has the old 1.4 TSI). The same can be said for Skoda, which is only likely to get it and the end of 2017.

Skoda head of communications Peik von Bestenbostel recently declared that the 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque engine will only be available starting the second half of this year. What many people fail to mention, though, is that the specifications for the Golf 1.
TSI turbo aren't exactly that much different than the ones of the 1.4 TSI. What does this mean?

For example, when powering a Golf, the 1.5 liter turbo requires approximately 5 liters/100 km. Before the facelift, it used to require 5.2 liters. Even so, it's important to mention that the sprint time necessary to reach 100 km/h has gone from 8.2 seconds on the 1.4 to 8.3 seconds. Meanwhile, the tests performed on the 80 to 120 km/h elasticity revealed the same 7.5 seconds. However, drivers are highly likely to notice a bit more grunt due to the longer stroke.

Moving on, the Golf models that benefit from this engine feature the well known Active Cylinder Timing technology. This means that half of the cylinders shut down under light loads. But let's remember that this isn't such an innovative technology, as it has been featured in the Polo BlueGT as well. The Skoda Octavia 1.5 TSI models may not benefit from ACT, though.

At this point, the world is paying attention on the company to see if it will also offer a 130 horsepower of the model. As we already know, the Skoda Octavia vehicles lacked the 125 PS 1.4 TSI. The main reason? Well, simply said, slow demand from the public.

As for the diesel area, things are quite obvious now. The 1.5 TDI that should have been introduced to the TSI Evo may not be available in Europe – or anywhere else in the world, for that matter.
