Comment of the day – Sandyzen – “Thats great… The 2.0 liter TSI seems a befitting replacement to the diesel unit for a humble yet stunning sedan, marginal low in torque may be compensated with lower weight of petrol model if it happens to be. Works for luxury car segment lovers, especially when one finds the car almost getting camouflaged on an equally well tarmac straight and wide road… thats quite satisfying.”
