is introducing a new 160hp version of its 1.4-liter TFSI engine. This engine and the 122hp version are replacing
1.6 FSI and 2.0 FSI engines which produced 115 and 150hp, respectively. This change in the engine lineup will start in the
and Golf Variant versions.
As we mentioned before, Volkswagen is dropping its direct-injection
technology (pump-injection), first used two decades ago, and will join the rest of automakers in using common-rail injection technology for its diesel drivelines. This new 2.0
HDi dCi CDi CDTi
TDI is already Euro 5 compliant. Although it was announced as coming in the
new Golf VI
, Germans can already buy the 2.0 TDI mated to the Jetta and Golf Variant (pictured above) and, later, in the Golf Plus. Although power remains unchanged from the old 2.0-liter at 140hp and fuel consumption is kept at 5.5 l/km (43mpg U.S.), CO
are down to 143 grams of CO
per km and torque improves up to 320 Nm (236 lb-ft).
