Believe it or not, Jeremy Clarkson owns and drives a Golf. From the looks of it, we are dealing with a GTI hot hatchback, the type of car genre Jeremy is profoundly attached to. The 55-year-old British motoring journalist is "very happy" with his new car and he bought it for two reasons as far as we can figure out – its 155 mph (250 km/h) top speed and its outstanding fuel efficiency. The turbocharged 2-liter TSI four-cylinder engine and its 230 PS of grunt can return up to 5.4 l/100 km (43.5 mpg US/52.3 mpg UK).
Vector in details such as the fact it can seat 5 adults, the cavernous trunk, and the fact that it's reliable, and you can clearly understand why the VW Golf GTI Mk VII is such a cool car. It's so cool that Jeremy Clarkson "couldn't give a stuff about how much nitrogen it's production." Well now, Jeremy, nitrogen is the specialty of a diesel engine. Captain Obvious says that gasoline-fed mills such as this 2.0 TSI emit more CO2 than NOx.
Nevertheless, we understand what Jeremy tries to prove through his latest Twitter activity. Volkswagen has made a big no-no with its defeat device on the 2.0 TDI Type EA 189 turbo diesel engine, but that's not enough for most people to buy Japanese or Korean over a German product. If you're curious how CO2 and NOx affect the environment and our health, you should read this little guide.
