I bought the 3 door hatchback Golf TDI
and have been getting over 51 mpg
average in highway driving. That's with
the air conditionner running and at
speeds of about 72 mph average. This
car develops top torque at 1900 rpm and
so is fast off the line and extremely
economical to drive.
It meets my standards for economical
yet competent top end driving as it
gets more than one-half its horsepower
rating (93) in miles per gallon and
will quite easily go faster than 1x
that same horsepower rating.
Most cars can't come close to meeting
this horsepower-based driving standard
and with most drivers driven by high
horsepower ratings alone, they likely
Bravissimo for the Golf TDI!
The entire car but especially the
performance and umph of the 5 speed
manual linked to a diesel turbo direct
