The role of the initial unit is assigned to the 1.5 TSI turbo engine (previously there was a 1.0 TSI), developing 115 horsepower and 220 Nm of torque. Also available are the one and a half eTSI with a 48-volt starter-generator (115/150 hp) and the 2.0 TDI diesel (115/150 hp). Gearboxes are a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG robot.
