Now, some details have surfaced by way if CARandDRIVER, who learned that the production variant may actually have more than 400hp, after speaking with Volkswagen’s research and development head, Heinz-Jakob Neusser. These hints came after Volkswagen AG became a focal point at this year’s Vienna engine symposium.

The engine will reportedly be a seriously upgraded 2.0L turbocharged TSI four-banger mated to a six-speed DSG transmission with 4MOTION all-wheel drive. 0-62 is expected to happen in just 3.9 seconds with a top sprint pegged at 174 mph.
