Petrol-engines used to exist decades long before the modern fuel-alternatives we have on the market nowadays. Years and years before the invention of electric cars, hybrids and diesel engines, petrol used to be the most popular fuel-option
and today it is still on the top of the list. With the new and improved petrol engines we have on the market for the last decades, petrol tends to be a cost-effective option for a number of drivers, fitting their driving lifestyle better than the other alternatives. One of the most popular companies that focus their potential and knowledge in engine development and improvement is Volkswagen and this is the reason that today we want to have a closer look on five highly-ranked VW Group cars with petrol engines
. From the city-style convenience to the real road monsters, you can also have a look!
Volkswagen Up – 1.0-litre FSI
The mini that can turn into a wild highway player within a minute, for real! A minute car with a minute engine, this Volkswagen model is made with the 999cc three-cylinder petrol engine, which may sound very humble, however, this mini can easily play on the motorway, when tuned to produce 74bhp. Another beneficial feature we find the entire aluminium body, which is designed to reduce the internal friction.
Volkswagen Polo Blue GT – 1.4-litre TFSI (with COD)
This car, although being a more settle model and its intelligent engine system is definitely a good cost-efficient option for you. What do we mean by a smart engine system? With VW Polo Blue it pretty much means that if you don’t need the four-cylinders, it can simply turn off few of them. This system makes Polo Blue pretty much a very flexible option for you, fitting your lifestyle, no matter the engine demands is lower, or higher. With Polo Blue fuel economy and emissions get a healthy boost.
SEAT Leon Cupra 290 – 2.0-litre TFSI
A great alternative for all those environmentally-friendly drivers, because SEAT Leon Cupra 290 enjoys another innovative engine system that serves up a healthy 286bhp. This feature makes the Leon Cupra a practical family hatchback you will pretty much enjoy a lot. In addition, this SEAT model comes equipped with a limited-slip differential that helps taming the engine power.
Audi A4 TFSI – 2.0-litre TFSI 190PS
Another innovative engine system we have right here, which allows this Audi model’s turbocharged four-cylinder engine to deliver 187hp and still return 58.9mpg. This is possible thank to the limit of the amount of air and fuel that are sucked into the cylinders and help the overall fuel consumption to be significantly reduced. Thanks to the reduced weight of the engine and the special system allowing faster warming up, we can definitely say that this is one of the most advanced and smartest engine systems we have on the market.
Audi RS3 Sportback – 2.5-litre TFSI
One of the examples for the rare 5-cylinder engines, which is equipped with a very smart system in addition, which brings to Audi RS3 amazing reputation and a leading name in various aspects. A seven-speed automatic gearbox and the four-wheel-drive system, accomplished with stop-start technology and very tentative right foot make Audi RS3 definitely not the most cost-effective options in this class, however, we really enjoy this 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine and we definitely justify buying it!
