Its 2.5L TFSI 5-cylinder engine makes 367 hp and 343 lb-ft. of torque. That is enough power and torque to push the compact wagon from a standstill to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.4 seconds. Its top speed is 167.8 mph, and even with its performance specs, it still gets 27.4 mpg combined. Along with more power, the performance version gets special wheels, updated suspension, and a lower ride height.
