The performance range of the four TSI (turbo direct fuel injection engines) extends from 92 kW / 125 PS via 132 kW / 180 PS and 162 kW / 220 PS up to the new 206 kW / 280 PS powered exceptional engine of the Scirocco R. Volkswagen is using the 1.4 TSI with 125 PS for the first time; the base engine consumes 1.0 litres less per 100 km than the previous engine, and it accelerates the Scirocco to a top speed of 203 km/h. Also, the 180 PS powered 2.0 TSI is new in the coupé line-up, following the 1.4 TSI with 118 kW / 160 PS in Europe. Although the new engine develops 20 PS more power and takes the Scirocco to a top speed of 227 km/h (previous model: 218 km/h), it is some 0.6 litres per 100 km more economical than the 160 PS version. The 2.0 TSI, which was adapted from the Golf GTI with 220 PS, is also new in the coupé; a reduction in consumption of 1.4 litres per 100 km compared to its predecessor or 19 per cent. With this engine, the Scirocco 2.0 TSI accelerates to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 246 km/h in the version with a manual gearbox. The new Scirocco R is even speedier in the spring to 100 km/h. When a DSG gearbox is installed, it only takes 5.6 seconds for the sports car to reach 100 km/h. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: ► FACEBOOK: ► TWITTER: ► GOOGLE+:
