Never one to be diminutive, the Volkswagen Golf line-up has further boosted its athletic confidence with a new GTI Performance model, as well as a frugal new engine.
The slick new 1.5-litre EVO engine is effortlessly efficient, without compromising on a drop of power. Available in the Golf hatch and Golf Estate ranges, one can expect 250 Nm of torque from just 1,500 RPM; sprinting from 0 to 62 mph in a mere 8.3 seconds, fuel economy remains at a an enviable 55.4 mpg for the 150 PS 1.5 TSI EVO hatchback, with CO2 emissions of 116 g/km for the manual and 114 g/km for the DSG automatic.
Clean yet commanding is certainly Volkswagen’s current philosophy across its sport ranges. The new Golf GTI Performance has an increased power output of 245 PS, allowing for 62 mph to be reached in a blistering 6.2 seconds. As one might expect from a Golf, sporting potency is mixed with everyday practicality; five seats, a 380-litre boot and a 12.3-inch Active Info Display make real-world driving the epitome of convenience.
