The 2.0 TSI engine pumps out 288 HP – power previously unimaginable from such a small engine. An optional seven-speed dual clutch moves swiftly and seamlessly between gears with zero loss of torque. We’ve upsized the turbocharger and bolstered the cylinder heads, exhaust valves and pistons. Bottom line? Top-tier performance – from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds.

†Please drive safely and obey all traffic laws, including speed limits.

Fuel consumption ratings are estimates based on Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) fuel consumption criteria and testing methods for 2019 and 2020 model year vehicles and are provided for comparison purposes only. Please note that comparisons to seemingly similar vehicles pre-2015 model year will show discrepancies due to the difference in NRCan approved calculation methods for 2014 model year and older vehicles. Please refer to NRCan’s Fuel Consumption Guide 2019 and 2020 for estimated fuel consumption figures. Actual fuel consumption will vary based on driving conditions, driver habits and the vehicle’s condition, weight carried and additional equipment. Tires are supplied and warranted by their manufacturer. Most vehicles are sold equipped with four all-season tires. For vehicles sold equipped with summer performance tires, note that appropriate all-season or winter weather tires are required for driving during cold, snowy or icy weather conditions. Please remember that the use of winter tires may be mandatory in your province or territory. Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all accident scenarios. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear seats, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age. The navigation system depends upon signals from the GPS network and is designed to provide you with suggested routes only. Discrepancies may occur between the mapping and the actual location due to changes in street names, construction or other road system changes which are beyond the control of
Volkswagen Canada. Please rely on your individual judgment in determining whether or not to follow a suggested navigation route.
