Both models are available with a choice of two engines. Paired to an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission, the 1.4l four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine makes 110kW and 250Nm of torque. Expect a 0-100km/h time of 8.4 seconds and maximum speed of 205km/h while fuel consumption across the combined cycle measures in at a frugal 6.3l/100km.
Those seeking a little more muscle can opt for the 2.0l four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine tuned to deliver 140kW and 320Nm of torque to all four wheels via seven-speed DSG transmission. It reaches 0-100km/h in 7.2 seconds while the VO2 Max increases to 216km/h. Fuel consumption? You're looking at 7.3l/100km across the combined cycle.
