SACRAMENTO, CA – What’s so hot about turbo? It creates smaller bits of gas, a spray that explodes hotter when ignited by a spark. The hotter explosion, captured within a cylinder with its head bolted on tight, causes a piston within the cylinder to slide down its well-oiled walls. Why? To help other pistons crank a shaft below, to ultimately turn the wheels of your car faster. Turbo is a word in our lexicon that need no translation, turbo = power.

Last week we had a turbo-charged automotive experience in the 2018 Volkswagen Golf S (SportWagen), taking it out for a tour of the California Delta region south of Sacramento. In addition to the Golf’s TSI turbo engine, its packed with safety features, which added an extra quantum of comfort to our day in the country.
