VW Polo 12 TSI at VW introduces new 1.2 liter TSI engine

In their quest to make more efficient engines through downsizing and then turbocharging, VW is introducing a new compact TSI engine which can be ordered with the Polo, Golf and Golf Plus. The previous compact 1.4 liter engine has been a hit and won many awards. The new 1.2 liter uses the same trick (turbochargers) to have the maximum efficiency while delivering an acceptable power of 77 kW / 105 hp and 175 Newton meters of torque from 1,500 rpm.

This engine is all very clever. Apart from its small displacement, it uses friction optimization and lightweight construction. The engine is not only based on an aluminum crankcase. In addition, the completely re-tuned direct injection provides smooth power development, low consumption and low emissions. VW is definitely using their precious experiences from developing the 1.4 liter to make the new engine even better.

The 1.2 liter engine averages about 5.2 liter per 100 km. A VW Polo equipped with this engine costs 16.425 Euro, the Golf starts at 18.475 Euro and the Golf Plus runs for 20.275 Euro.
