Volkswagen Golf Diesel Lineup

2005 Volkswagen Golf Diesel Lineup
Volkswagen Press Release

Volkswagen Golf 2005Volkswagen Group Australia recently launched the all-new Golf range with a choice of two turbo diesel engines, allowing Volkswagen to offer the most affordable diesel passenger vehicle in the Australian market to date.

The 2.0-litre TDI four-valve unit direct injection turbo-diesel engine provides 103kW of power at 4000 rpm and a massive 320Nm of torque between 1750 and 2500 rpm. The other engine is the 1.9-litre TDI (77kW @ 4000 rpm / 250Nm @ 1900 rpm).

Why the option of diesel? Because simply Volkswagen excels in this area of engine technology (no better example than the V10 TDI diesel powerplant in the Touareg 4WD) – the company manufactured more than 2 million diesel-powered passenger cars last year.

2.0-litre TDI
Volkswagen’s all-new 2.0-litre TDI turbo-diesel delivers 103kW of power at 4000 rpm and maximum torque of 320Nm between just 1750 rpm and 2500 rpm.

1.9-litre TDI
Developing 77kW of power at 4000 rpm and peak torque of 250Nm from as low as 1900 rpm, the 1.9TDI is both agile and economical (average fuel consumption according to ADR 81/01 methods is 5.5l/100 kms) giving approximately 100kms between tanks.
