That is some crazy numbers there famousshoes !!

Honestly, I must admit that this is not a complete shocker to me. These VAG engines offer an uncanny combination of Performance and Efficiency. if driven right, and maintained religiously, I think these engines more often than not outlast the ownership.

During a Bangalore-Munnar road trip, with some long coastings and light foot for the most part, this was the best I could get from my 1.6 GT TDI!!

P.S - My biggest gripe is the VAG's spare part inventory, and quite an incompetent after sales.

Even my Jetta on highway trips returns around 19-20 kmpl cruising at around 100. What I love about it is, even at that speed the cruising is so effortless, thanks to the 2.0 engine.

Yep...imagine if VW got to know what this 1.6 TDI is actually capable of.
They may just re-launch this in their 11,456th Polo Facelift!!

If you follow my ownership thread, I have documented my ordeal of dealing with VW A.S.S when my GT's EGR went kaput. My car was in my garage for a week, and at VW yard for another 10 days. So basically, was out of commission for nearly 3 weeks

Even the tiniest and probably the most obvious part such as Rear Wiper Blade is not available, considering its the monsoon season now from 2 months.

But all said and done, every time I get behind the wheel, everything else is forgiven and forgotten.
