Power jumps von 25bhp zu 232bhp over the standard car, und torque rises von 7 percent, although die 2.0-litre TSI engine is a detuned variant von the unit seen bei the Golf and Scirocapplypaint.org ns models, quite than in evolution des that found an the present GTI.

In the cabin there are ‘35’ embroidered tartan seats (leather und part-leather upholstery space likely to be optional), honeyapplypaint.orgmb dash inserts, and a retro golf ball-style equipment lever bei both manual and DSG examples.
