    272 PS? Just awesome. Get this on road legal cars boss. Maybe Elantra or Sonata. The engine will alone get some customers.

    Clearly, these 3 pot turbos, either in petrol or diesel seem to be the engines of the future small car. Ford was the 1st to arrive with this package nearly 2 years ago. Yet, they wouldn’t offer their ecoboost mill for the figo or fiesta!! Definitely some logic defying strategies Ford follows 😉

    Hope VW will launch these brilliant mills in India by this yearend.
