Best Technological Innovation of the Year
The Volkswagen Sport Golf GT powered by a TSI engine and mated with dual clutch transmission (DSG) was honored with “Barcelona International Motor Show Award 2007”. In May, the TSI engines brought home to Wolfsburg the “Engine of the Year Award” for their class.
The Spanish jury for the Golf GT Sport, a car whose powertrain systems are among the most technologically advanced in the world; the engines of the GT Sport cover a range from 75 kW to 125 kW. The prize-winning high-end engine, the 125 kW (170 PS) strong TSI, is a prime example of innovative engine charging. Its maximum torque of 240 Newton-meters at a low 1,750 rpm enables an absolutely impressive style of propulsion. After just 7.3 seconds the Golf GT Sport is moving at a fast 100 km/h, and its top speed is 220 km/h.
This is contrasted by – and this is decisive – an average fuel consumption of just 7.3 liters per 100 kilometers. This does not change when the Golf GT Sport TSI is paired with the innovative dual clutch transmission (DSG) either. This transmission, the only one of its kind in the world, unifies the comfort of an automatic and the dynamics and economy of a manual transmission.
TSI engines are currently offered on these Volkswagen models: Golf, Golf Variant, Golf Plus, CrossGolf, Jetta, Touran and CrossTouran. DSG dual clutch transmission is also available on these models, as well as on the Eos, Passat and Passat Variant.
