No wonder, therefore, that watching is the thing, Volkswagen has decided to re-incorporate this level of power in the Golf. They seek protection in new market trends: the customer starts buying fewer horses and equipment. With this version, leave this Golf, resurrecting a simple but dignified finish Rabbit equipped to almost 3,000 euros from 105 hp 1.6 TDI Bluemotion Technologies (BMT) so far the balance point of the range. Not too much money to be attentive to see how this is going to blow Golf accelerator or less than this theoretical benefit compared to 1.6 TDi / 105 is compensated or not in fuel consumption.

Citroen has never missed this designation, but, a priori, the thing is more complicated
the Golf: 1.6 HDi / 112 hp only costs 1,000 euros more than the 90 hp and comes with 6 ratios change series. So very good performance / consumption that can offer this version analyzed today, nor would read: invest it at 112 hp. And finally, Toyota may be the most difficult to put it: I believe that the 2.0 D-4D 126 hp will "spare engine" can be doubt that the 1.4 D-4D lacks delivery, packaging or push since It employs one of the smaller engines in its category. By the way, Toyota is the only one that has a lot gearbox 6 speed. And although all these brands advertised with great fanfare ecology and democratize its large engines, Stop-Start absent in these three versions.

We are also, in the case of Citroen and VW, homologated consumption higher than their more powerful versions, either by said gear box 6 in the C4 HDi / 112 or by the contribution of the Stop-Start (along with other measures "antiemisiones"Such as regenerating braking energy) for the Golf 1.6 TDi BMT, but yes, all are below 120 g / km of CO2 emissions and therefore exempt from tax.

I must admit that, moving at a very fast pace with them, not reach its destination a second later that if they had those 20 or 30 hp more. Although beginning to be a good time to enter nuances. If you have not gotten a new update to 1.6 TDi, at least Golf drive our little or no resemblance to what you might expect a user with slight references of which spreads an engine with this power. Indeed, in its passage through the roller bench "it grows", that being closer to the 105 hp engine part, which promises 90. Yes, here it drives a fifth gear 50 km / h instead of a sixth identical end relationship but with other closer together previous five, the most powerful version. It is, in short, is the engine more "whole" seems Lot, assimilating its large jumps between gears, namely, second and third, the most used to loiter in town or out of a roundabout without ever stopping. And are not numbers but the mere feeling that there throttle action after mechanical reaction: From 1,500 rpm up without clear faintness until well into the 4000 rpm (and on), so any situation where the long fifth gear Golf can "choke"The engine guarantees sufficient strength to overspeed for that reduction take us out of trouble.

That is precisely the main weakness of the HDi: Little feel good you keep climbing from 3,700 rpm because its performance ceases abruptly. but fortunately Progression is all low-end, where it manifests a typical initial response Citroen gently in the foreground; Perfect for the driver most tourist court. Finally, there remains the big surprise for anyone who does not know the Toyota engine. 1.4 D-4D engine with low pay its arrival effective power and torque more laps than rivals. From the border of 1,800 rpm it is when it is in full swing; but its six gears partly cover its shortcomings and at full throttle speed increases decisively, without finding any bump in their progression to eventually clamping a leisurely cruise without great expense or too mechanical noise.
