Its compact nature made it practical on narrow roads in Goa and a blast to drive on the wider ones.
BHPian db01 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I just returned from a 1300km road trip from Bangalore to Goa. Here are some things I loved and disliked about my newly acquired pre-worshipped GT TSI.
What I loved:
- The torque from the little 1.2 tsi paired with the DSG leaves everything behind from a standstill at toll plazas.
- The car is so chuckable, and manoeuvering through truck traffic on the highway was a breeze.
- Its compact nature made it practical on narrow roads in Goa and a blast to drive on the wider ones.
- The car feels planted at high speeds, and a lot of that speed can be carried through corners on the highway.
What I disliked:
- The suspension tends to bottom out at the front over some of the expansion joints in the road with a loud thud unless you slow down to around 70-80 kmph.
- The car also feels a little skittish over undulating surfaces.
- It gets pretty loud in the cabin at speed. Largely down to the road noise from the crappy MRF ZVTV tires on the car.
- The braking performance needs to be improved (maybe a big brake kit or better rotors and pads), which isn’t aided by the lack of engine braking when the car sits in D7 on the highway. I also noticed a lot of brake dust on the wheels.
Last but not least, some pictures from the trip:
