During the construction the designers managed to reduce the weight by 7.5 % compared to the previous generation. All this together with the new generation of TDI and TSI engines or the seven-gear double-clutch DSG gearbox results in a significant reduction of fuel consumption as well as lower emissions, which applies to the full range of equipment and engine types.
