Volkswagen South Africa's enduring Citi Golf has had its entry-level model engine uprated to 1.4-litres, replacing the current 1300 carburettor engine.

"This new engine continues the remarkable history of the Citi Golf in the South African market - the only country in the world where it is still produced," says Bill Stephens, Volkswagen's sales and marketing general manager.

"Without a doubt we expect the Citi Golf to be with us for many, many more years."

The entry-level Chico 1.4-litre has an engine developing a maximum power output of 54kW at 5 500 r/min with torque of 108 Nm at 3 800 r/min some 7 Nm up.

There is also a performance advantage, with the 0-100km/h time up to 11.7 seconds, while top speed is 156km/h.

Price is R60 390, supported by a three-year/120 000km warranty.
