Rather than choosing the hot GTI version and making a super-hot hatch out of it, tuning company Ingo Noak decided to work on the entry-level 1.4 TSI and see if they can make a car that is both fast and economical. Judging by the numbers, they’ve pulled it off.
Ingo Noak VW Golf with the 1.4 liter TSI engine has been fiddled with electronically, and the result of that is an output of 180 horsepower and 315 nm of torque. That is, by anyone’s standard, for the TSI-powered Golf to graduate into the hot hatch league.
Besides boosting the power, Ingo Noak has also tweaked the Golf visually, fitting it with a nice body kit, consisting of front and rear aprons, side skirts, and a new and very interesting tailpipe arrangement. Headlight bezels and some cool graphics on the sills complement the treatment.
Last but not least, Ingo set about tuning the chassis. They have installed KW Inox Line Variant 1 coilover suspension and a set of 20-inch wheels, finished in black and wrapped with 235/30 tires.
