Turbo Stratified Injection
The VW Golf 1.4 TSI GT gets the 158bhp version of the 1.4 -litre TSI engine. This is a tiny 16-valve petrol turbo unit with continuously variable inlet valve timing. Its headline feature is a crank-driven supercharger, which is on hand to augment the more usual turbocharger when extra torque is needed.
The Golf GT is a 140PS TDI engine and it comes with cruise control as standard and is £4,000 less than a GTI . It has less sporty interior trim and features but good on fuel compared to the GTI and it can be chipped.
The GTI is a more performance oriented model and uses a 2.0L turbo. Lastly the TDI uses a 2.0L turbo diesel engine and is ideal for high mpg driving.
However, when you are reaching up to 1.5 million miles , the engine is approaching its limits. In terms of years, Volkswagen Golfs can run for an average of 5 years without problems and can still work further after changing the timing belt and if you maintain the engine regularly.
If you look at the 2016 Golf TSI model, it is more affordable than the TDI and offers slightly more horsepower. The 2016 Golf TDI on the other hand, offers more torque.
The TSI doesn’t have as much torque, but it accelerates quicker than the TDI due to the extra horsepower.
Since its debut 1.4 TSI has been praised for its excellent dynamics and relatively low fuel consumption. Particularly impressed were the owners of the sequentially supercharged version. Gasoline consumption in this case was 7.5 – 8 liters per 100 kilometers.
Built to be strong and light, TSI engines all deliver high specific torque from much lower revs, to make Volkswagen cars more lively, economical and clean-running. Volkswagen TSI engines combine direct injection with turbocharging, and also feature an intercooler to deliver more efficient motoring.
turbocharged stratified injection
The Volkswagen turbocharged stratified injected ( TSI ) engine is a lightweight, high-power, fuel-efficient four-cylinder traditional combustion engine. It is found in some form on most Volkswagen vehicles, such as the Atlas, Tiguan, and Passat.
The Golf R is that kind of car that masks the imperfections of the road thanks to its AWD system. The GTI , meanwhile, is more incisive, more responsive in its accelerations even if it has fewer horses to play with under the hood. On this day, the four-wheel drive of the Golf R gave it an unsurmountable advantage.
The R in Golf R stands for Racing .
The Volkswagen Golf Reliability Rating is 4.0 out of 5.0, which ranks it 25th out of 36 for compact cars. The average annual repair cost is $630 which means it has average ownership costs. Repairs are less severe than average, and the frequency of these issues is average, so major repairs are not common for the Golf.
