Drove the 5 speed manual 1.6 Conceptline Polo with a non turbo 1.6 Petrol Engine (66kW (155Nm) / EA211 family/ Engine Code: CWVB), the fuel consumption is 4.9L/100km.
It seems like the fuel consumption is not much difference compare to a 1.0 TSi Polo???
I'm also interested in buying a new Polo, and not sure whether to rather get the MPI engine. Fuel consumption is my main decision driver, and I'm not impressed by what the 1.0TSI seam to give most people (7+ L/100km). If the MPI is close to this, I'll rather buy the MPI.
Can you please continue to post fuel consumption figures. Thanks.
I stay in Cape Town and I drive mostly in 60km/h to 70km/h roads with some traffic, the following is my fuel consumption after yesterday's driving. When looking at the fuel consumption please also pay attention to the average speed, a higher average speed should have lower fuel consumption and vise versa.
And the following is the fuel consumption after this morning's driving:
It is safe to say that my 1.6 Conceptline Polo in average consume 7.0L/100km for my driving condition, and don't forget my car still need to run-in, I predict after the first oil change my car should be a little bit more fuel efficient.
I don't know what your driving condition is like, but as I mentioned earlier the 1.0TSi (70kw - 5 Speed Manual) can only drive on 4th gear at speed of below 75km/h, this is why the 1.0TSi (70kW - 5 Speed Manual) will actually consume more fuel in MY driving condition.
I also have a VW Caddy Crewbus 1.6 (81kW / 155Nm / Engine Code: CWVA), it has the same engine as my 1.6 Polo (66kW / 155Nm / Engine Code: CWVB) but in a tuned up version. My Caddy got about 13000km on it and its Long Term fuel consumption is 8.4L/100km.
I am not sure if you are aware of the 1.6 Polo (EA211 family petrol engine) and the 1.6 Polo Vivo (EA111 family petrol engine) don't have the same 1.6 engine, the 1.6 Polo has a timing belt driven engine which is better in my opinion. The engine bay of my 1.6 Polo is shown below:
Another thing you need to know before you buy the 1.6 Polo, is the choice of petrol to fill you car. The label on the 1.6 Polo shown that you can fill 93 ULP into you car. as shown below:
BUT when I check the ErWin (VW's official workshop / technical manual), it shows that the 1.6 Polo can only be filled with 95 ULP, as shown below. I stay in Cape Town and we only have 95 ULP, so I won't have a problem. You have to check the area you stay, will you be able to find 95 ULP easily.
Buying a Polo is a good choice, it is a safe car with 6 airbags, just for interest sake I attached a picture below to shown how many Hot Formed UHSS (In RED) are used on the new Polo (AW):
Just for comparison, I attached a picture of the body structure of the previous generation Polo (6C), you can see VW did a lot to try to improve the safety (Body Structure Strength) of the new Polo (AW).
