6th October, 2010

Volkswagen Group Australia is introducing a new affordable entry model to its Golf range. Powered by the 77kW TSI petrol engine, previously introduced in the new Polo, the new Golf 77TSI provides competitive design and engineering at a lower cost.

As with the entire Golf range, the Golf 77TSI establishes a new direction in the evolution of this model. Combined with design qualities and technologies such as a sophisticated braking system with ABS and ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme) as standard, along with optimised crash properties, seven airbags including a knee airbag, safety optimised head restraints that work to counteract whiplash trauma and daytime running lights which provide for a maximum level of safety.

At the core of the new Golf 77TSI lies the small but powerful 1.2 litres TSI engine. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine follows the downsizing philosophy of the 1.4 litres TSI and 2.0 litre TSI.

This expresses itself as maximum power with minimal fuel consumption. The latest TSI is 'characterised' by impressive performance which is contrasted with fuel consumption and emissions values as low as 6.1 litre per 100 km (manual) and 144 g/km CO2.

The maximum torque of 175 Newton-metres is available between 1,550 to 4,100 rpm. The Golf 1.2 TSI is delivered with a standard 6-speed manual transmission but can be optioned with a 7-speed DSG transmission.

The Golf 77TSI will inherit the same features as the previous entry model, the Golf 90TSI Trendline. Alongside the introduction of the Golf 77TSI, the whole Golf Trendline range, including the Golf Wagon Trendline, receives an equipment upgrade at no extra cost. Popular features such as cruise control and multi-function leather steering wheel now come as standard together with the option of having Bluetooth technology.

Most notable, these new standard features are on top of the already extensive standard equipment list which includes Multi Functional Display (MFD trip computer), “Titanium” decor inserts and semi-automatic air conditioning. In addition, aesthetic features such as the leather finish for gearshift knob and handbrake lever along with  15” Wellington alloy wheels (16" Sedona alloy wheels for Golf Wagon), add even further value to the Trendline range thereby finishing off the upgrade with style.

The new entry Volkswagen Golf 77TSI, together with the new generous equipment upgrade for the Trendline range, once and for all ensure that the Golf remains a competitive choice for those consumers who seek a compact car.

As the entry-level model the Golf 77TSI starts at $21,990* for the six-speed manual, while the 7-speed DSG variant is priced from $24,490*.
