The powerful RS has a 230hp, 2.0-litre TSI motor mated to a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It features an aggressive body kit, blacked-out trim bits, and larger alloy wheels to differentiate it from the standard car. The car also comes with a re-tuned suspension and 17-inch alloy wheels instead of 18-inch ones on the car that’s sold abroad.
It also comes fitted with LED headlamps, tail-lamps, fog lamps and daytime running lights, steel exhaust tips, and a tailgate spoiler. On the inside, there’s a 9.2-inch touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. As far as safety is concerned, there are nine airbags, ESP and a park-assist system.
