Hi folks, newbie to VW and to Diesel engines have driven petrol all my life

anyways traded my 2005 Mazda 3 for a 2016 VW golf estate longue edition and it is a very impress car ... spec wise

my gripe is with the engine I feel she under powered and am staying in lower gears at higher speeds to feel her motoring along ( it is a manual bit automatic by the way)

I sometimes have to drop back to third gear from fourth when travelling at 50kmh

never felt I had to drop to lower gears with the 1.6 Mazda petrol

Can anyone enlighten me ??
Many thanks
Will Hay
