The downsizing seems is not so kind with our planet, by their pollutant emissions, as they wanted us to see, and some manufacturers are stepping back and developing less “tight” engines to actually get figures of emissions in usual circulation and not only on a test bench.
The Volkswagen Group will replace gradually its current engine 1.4 TSI, which has been in the market more than one decade, by a propeller 1.5 TSI Evo much more modern and technology-Laden. The first model in brand new it will be the Volkswagen Golf in its recently submitted update that in just a few weeks you will begin to see through our streets.
