Vehicle would likely attract business users

The company has not yet announced the consumption figures for the eTSI version, but we have seen the same unit in the Volkswagen Golf that boosts efficiency by around 9%. The unit is RDE2 compliant, which means the nitrogen oxide levels are below 59mg/km. The starting price of the vehicle is pretty moderate and it comes with the 106bhp 1.0-liter TSI unit.

The eTSI is combined with an efficiency-boosting DSG gearbox, and it uses a 48v starter, generator. It also uses a small lithium-ion battery that allows engine off-coasting and enables energy recuperation under deceleration as well as provides torque assistance.

The price for the e-Hybrid plug-in is even higher, and it comes with a 1.4-liter TSI petrol engine, an electric motor, and a six-speed DSG gearbox. It also comes with a 13kWh battery pack.

The power produced by the engine is 202bhp, it can reach 61mph in 7.4sec. The CO2 emissions are down to 26g/km, as shown in the WLTP test cycle, so it’s a significant improvement. The economy is claimed to be in between 216.4 and 224.3mpg.

The vehicle can give a mileage of up to 35 miles on a complete charge, but you can top-up it only with a 6kW AC inlet. A full charge can take about four hours, so keep this in mind before deciding to purchase it. The vehicle would likely attract business users, as it provides a benefit-in-kind rate of just 9%.

The company has also announced the PCP leas prices, which are based on a 4% APR rate and a £1000 deposit contribution. SE specs are available as standard and come with LED headlights, keyless start, automatic high-beam, a leather steering wheel, and a touchscreen infotainment system.

The FR Sport comes with a winter pack including heated front seats, a black headliner, and microfiber cloth upholstery. The range-toppers are Xcellence and Xcellence Lux, which comes with features like active cruise control and leather trim.
