Additional Info: The 2.0 TSi R 4Motion is also available with the DSG automatic transmission (0-60 in 5.3 secs). Now known as the “R” because of the loss of the 3.2 litre V6 unit in favour of a strengthened and lighter straight 4 2.0 litre unit. A new and improved 4WD system has also been introduced into this model.
