Volkswagen ready to launch the Golf TDI S
|   Friday, February 01, 2013
Volkswagen has created history by launching the cheapest and most fuel efficient Golf in the history of the company. Embedded with a basic S and SE Trim, the standard kit structure includes a 5.8 inch multimedia touch screen with Bluetooth connectivity and DAB Tuner and the base model deserves appreciation for the high level of instruments available considering the cost.

The base model is powered by a 1.6 liter diesel engine which has been freshly designed for installation in the Volkswagen flagship model.
The new engine may cost close to £2,500 more than the premium segment 1.2 liter petrol engine but is highly effective. Average fuel consumption figures are 74.3 MPG and the basic CO2 emission is roughly 99 g/km. The figures speak for themselves and the customers are bound to receive tax grants for opting for this model.

Volkswagen has branded this model as a Blue Motion and the previous trims have been redesigned for installation in this vehicle. Volkswagen has chosen to save money by opting to induce the previous generation torsion bar instead of designing a new one for the vehicle. However, the multilink rear suspension is quite sophisticated and is present in the entire Golf range.

The S Trim comes with a standard 15 inch sports rim, equipped with disc brakes for additional braking capability. However, it is recommended that buyers opt for the 16 inch rims as it complements the suspension setting perfectly, even though it may mean additional expenditure of £825.

The S Trim however features compromise on the interior and feels quite basic on the inside. The cabin is not premium quality although it is usable. This is acceptable considering the price point and the performance features that Volkswagen has induced. Although the power to weight ration of the Golf is acceptable, the vehicle reaches 0 – 60 MPH in 10.9 seconds and the engine displaces a decent 104 BHP.

Steering is at an acceptable level and the dimensions of the vehicle are impressive. Volkswagen has contained the body roll and the engine is highly responsive. The vehicle performs even at the mid torque range and provides the highest economy rate possible. There is not complaint regarding the build quality although cheap materials have been used. The main reason for this is the parts do not feel plastic like.

The power train is quite impressive and the Golf provides the maximum power possible for the 1.6 liter engine. Considering the low running costs, the vehicle is perfect for long rides and the power production also makes it capable of freeway travelling. Priced at £19,565, the Golf 1.6 TDI S is the best vehicle in the segment and people could seriously consider purchasing this vehicle.

Sporting a top speed of 109 MPH, the four-cylinder engine block is quite amazing. The five speed transmission system works well with the engine to produce an overall decent performance. Maximum torque output of 184 ft lb is available at 1500 – 2700 RPM and that is the range where the Golf functions the best.
