The Inventor Of The Golf GTI has icts The Decline of concept is based Polo. The engine IS KNOWN, IT Is The small 1600 cm 3 Already In The Golf this. Slightly “Boosted” he Develops 125hp here. It Is Rather Modern flexible, sober and silent. However Because Of The Weight of the Relatively high because it is Not Exceptional performance, as Evidenced By The acceleration and lap times. One Would Have Better hoped for because we proudly Which Bills GTI is history chest. At The level of disappointment, the ride IS harsh and far too few “Best Of The Competitors. The Polo GTI Comes Quickly to Calm n The ardor of driver history. In contrast, full equipment, The General comfort and driving position are well studied.
In Finally, The Polo GTI Does not Really Give the Means to Become the Queen of Her Class Is Still Far From The kind of references. In short, a nice little history for Every Day by side “preppy” But The term misused and exaggerated prices.
Want to change your vehicle while enjoying the maximum bonus of € 1 000. Three models are available to you. Caradisiac tells you all about the Seat Ibiza Ecomotive, the Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion and Smart Fortwo cdi 0.8.
1. Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion – Smart Fortwo cdi 0.8: Versatile bonus …
3. Safety Data Sheets
Since its introduction earlier this year, the bonus / malus Green has already had repercussions on the French market. Indeed, as might be expected customers into account. Result, they opt for more urban or rejecting models sober and low CO2. 4×4 and large sedans are the most affected by this reform. Vehicles eligible for a bonus or being in the neutral zone are numerous. However, if you want to receive the maximum bonus of 1000 €, the choice is drastically reduced with only three models: the Seat Ibiza Ecomotive, the Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion and the Smart Fortwo cdi 0.8. How reliable are they? The notice of Caradisiac.
Does it happens to recognize at first glance these models of other less environmentally friendly versions. The answer depends on each brand. Thus, the Smart, no differentiation. The Fortwo cdi 0.8 is completely identical to other versions.
On Ibiza, the changes relate to the wheels. Several changes to report. SP10 Dunlop tires measuring 165/70 R14 195/55 R15 have replaced the basic version. Consequences: a lower rolling resistance which is enhanced by increased pressure of 2.9 and 2.7 bars. The reduced width of the tires improves aerodynamics. One factor that is accentuated by the full wheel covers that reduce air resistance. The other distinguishing feature is the logo Ecomotive “on the chest.
The Polo is the model that has received the most changes to improve the air penetration. It is provided with specific front and rear spoilers, a modified grille, a rear spoiler and 14 inch wheels fitted with low resistance tires. Some also find that the Polo has a false air car tune. You’ll understand hunting weight is a priority. Therefore, it is sometimes the equipment suffers. A finding verified in particular on the Polo and Ibiza Smart benefits mainly because of its light weight.
Thus, the Ibiza is in our best equipped with some comforts like air conditioning, centralization, 4 airbags, ABS or onboard computer. Ignores the Polo for its share of air conditioning but compensates with speed control. The Fortwo is distinguished by his fishing sunroof but the lack of power steering. Finally, do not expect too much from the finish or quality plastics that are basic.
Benefits of dynamic contrast
Not surprisingly, the Smart Fortwo excels in urban areas thanks to its microscopic size and low turning radius. If you want to get away, no major concern but you should be patient because we must not forget that the Fortwo is powered by the smallest diesel engine market, a 45-hp 0.8 cdi which tops out at 135 km / h . Its strength lies in its simplicity and its 3.4 l/100 rejection rate of C02 is the lowest in the market: 88 g / km. Among the major defects, we particularly note the sequential gearbox is far more references, the lack of soundproofing is particularly glaring tiring when used frequently and the many vibrations.
If the Smart is more comfortable in town, the Polo and Ibiza have a real versatility, as well as on city roads. Propelled, both by the same engine: the 1.4 TDI 80 hp, they enjoy good times and accelerations convincing but are penalized by vibration and soundproofing deficient. On Ibiza, the work has focused on developing a new engine control software but also the longer gear ratios including the 3rd, 4th and 5th reports. Top speed is 177 hp, the release of 99 g / km and the average amounts mixed according to the manufacturer to 3.8 l/100 km. During our testing, we have thus found an average of 4.8 l/100 km.
On the Polo is the gearbox which has received the most changes with longer reports on the 4th and 5th speeds thereby reducing the number of revolutions per minute. Slightly quieter than models with the 1.4 TDI, the fact remains that it is tiring on long distance. It will also play the box on the last two reports to increase performance and especially the times. The Polo is given to 181 km / h and combined fuel consumption of 3.9 l/100 km. For our test carried out in fast driving, we noticed an average of 6.3 l/100 km but consumption of 4.5 l/100 km in normal use seems reasonable.
