    Thanks for the great info! 90TSI for the Comfortline might be a bit underpowered...

    It would be interesting to see the sales breakup of the Mk6 Golf range as I wonder if poor sales of the 77TSI and 118TSI are the cause. Sort of sad there isn't a more powerful option, but then I suppose that's the GTI.

    One thing I find a little strange across all makes and models is the existence of hub caps, surely steel wheels vs alloys don't make a significant impact on price. Sure I understand they can be used as an upsell to the "better" model... but I really hate hub caps.


    If it has an engine or heartbeat it's going to cost you.

    The 90TSI on mk7 is quoted (overseas) as 8.4s for the run to 100, which for that sort of car is pretty reasonable I think. I'd suspect the bulk of the advertising will be geared to the Euro style/interior and no doubt outstanding fuel economy. Those that want more will have no problem stepping up to GTI.

    Interesting that the 103 Tsi engine is on the highline model only. After the initial rush for the new model I see this car being a tough sell for VW with this model Mix. Although I suspect the 103 engine will be dropped into the lower grade models at a later date. Certainly for me, if the 103 engine isn't in a sub $30000 package, then I will be buying elsewhere.

    I suppose *peak* power isn't everything, it's how it's delivered and how much torque it can put down, especially off idle and when wanting to overtake at speed.

    Will be interesting to see what comes out and more importantly how it drives.

    Yes the power is down but so is the weight. The Mk6 90TSI still feels fairly quick when you're in it, just not as immediate (turbo lag) or dramatic as the 118 (that said I find I don't rev into the turbo range much in the 118 so in that respect you could almost say the 90 would be more fun).

    Then of course we're always told that Australians buy more GTIs than other countries which may have had a role as well. Booked in for a service in early May so I plan to test drive one then.

    $36K seems to be steep increase in price considering drop in power. Would have though it would only be marginal increase in price from out-going 118.

    Passing on dealer intelligence for mk7 Golf

    Isn't the 90TSI with the dumbed down rear suspension?

    Ps I read about dealers getting preorders for the A45 AMG. Do VW accept preorders for something like the GTI which is already selling in Europe?
