THE Volkswagen Golf 1.2 TSI, with a 1.2-litre turbo engine, may be the entry-level Golf but it has better than entry-level performance.

The Golf 1.2 TSI with 105 hp is the most basic Golf available, and comes in below the Golf 1.4 TSI with 122 hp and the Golf Sport TSI producing 140 hp.

Mated to the familiar seven-speed dual clutch DSG direct shift gearbox, the 1.2 TSI is an all-new engine with double overhead camshafts and 16 valves (it replaces the previous model's single overhead cam eight-valve 1.2 TSI unit).
