Owner: geeteethree
Polo TDI: 1999 Volkswagen Polo CL TDI Estate
Displacement: 1.9 L
Fuel type: diesel
Transmission: manual
Curb weight: 0 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0
Frontal area: 0 sq.ft.
Description: Unlike most Polos, the estate was based on the SEAT Cordoba, which had a larger engine bay, allowing factory installation of the excellent TDI engine. It comes with the 90bhp AHU engine, as found in later Golf Mk3 models, and very tall gear ratios ( 59mph@2000rpm) If that gearbox was installed my other car 16VT, it could achieve a theoretical 190MPH :-D
