Those lucky bums over at Autoweek recently had a chance to flog a Euro-market VW Golf GT that was equipped with the manufacturer's new 1.4L turbo- and supercharged Twincharger (or TSI) engine. So, how does it perform? Much like one would expect from a powerplant that manages to make 121 HP/L and also provides nearly 85% of its peak torque at 1250 RPM, meaning that words such as "flexible", "responsive", and "linear" are used. Yummy. There's no word on fuel economy, but one can imagine that it's potentially rather good (and probably also heavily dependent on one's driving style).
