Of course, the SUV design language is taken inside the vehicle, too. The cockpit is aligned towards the driver and offers even more comfortable and more intuitive experience, while the wider central console is paired to the new 4MOTION Active Control system to create that one of a kind premium feel. And as we talk about interior ambience, we should mention and the ambient lightning and the panoramic roof that altogether offer incredibly sophisticated and cozy atmosphere.

Drivetrain system

Volkswagen engineers offer wide range of choice for power and comfort, when it comes to drivetrain system elements. In fact, there is a completely new lineup for customer base: there are three petrol units from power output from 125hp (91kW) to 180hp (132kW). All of them are Euro 6-compliant and offer smoother and more efficient ride.

The power units can be further paired to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox or a six-speed manual transmission. In addition, there is also a 4MOTION DSG configuration for the most powerful engine in the lineup: the 2.0 TSI with 180hp of power output.

These configuration allow a 0-100km/h (62mph) run between 7.7 and 9.3 seconds, while the top speed varies between 223km/h (124mph) and 232km/h (129mph).

Also, in terms of efficiency, the CO2 emissions are calculated at between 125g/km and 170 g/km with the 7-speed DSG.
