Unlike the 2.0-liter diesel in the 2009 VW Jetta TDI we criticized a few weeks ago, the character matches perfectly the DSG gearbox. Here equipped sportier programming than in TDI, shifts are well and rapid in automatic mode, more so in Sport. In manual DSG is objectively more able to this engine than a manual (not available) be, with upshifts occurring and downshifts taking place

DSG is a true automated manual, so you complete control over the in manual mode.

That gearbox and engine is actually very reminiscent of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR in its and turbocharged character, just a little less power.
