Another tune of this engine is also on offer, with the GT TDI variant. This will generate 105 PS power and 250 Nm torque. The petrol TSI 1.2 liter turbocharged engine offers 105 PS peak power at 5,000 rpm and 175 Nm peak torque at 1,500-4,100 rpm while a 1.2 liter petrol engine with 75 PS and 110 Nm is also on offer.
