Been searching for a good auto deal (not electric) anyone got a hot pick?
I've commented before on the '1 litre, pah,I need 0-60 in sub 4 seconds brigade' but even I wouldn't want this. 60hp was fine when cars weighed less than 1000kg, not this one's 1500kg. I think it's only there to be able to advertise a low price to get people interested who then spend another £1,500 on the 95hp turbo (58% more umph! ), or much more on high spec 95hp versions.
I agree - wasnt as bad as I expected it to be, but very noise when revved (and you had to keep revs high to make any progress). TSI is a much smoother and more refined offering. But for city driving its not the end of the world and the rest of the car is excellent in terms of space and comfort.
A 1 litre, non turbo in a B segment car is a really bad idea - definitely VW Group pushing their luck a bit too far.
£12k new, value after 3 years and 15k miles is about £6k. So the deal is on the money, not great, not bad. At the risk of blowing up the thread as per every single one of these I would say the one litre 59bhp is under powered, if you use it in town and drive defensively out of town it'll pull the car about absolutely fine with few complaints. I have no issue with that scenario. More than this though..... There's nothing for overtaking, going from merely 40-60mph in fourth needs a calendar and a space shuttle runway to safely go past so manage your expectations. Much on here is made of car performance and much is overblown. I personally feel this should have a little more pep though.
