Volkswagen sharing Golf GTI 210 HP engine with Scirocco and Eos

Sharing is caring in the Volkswagen group, as the company announced that the 2.0-liter TSI engine from the Golf GTI, which produces 210 HP and 280 (207 lb-ft) of torque will alo be made available on the Scirocco and Eos models.

The four-cylinder engine, for those of you who don’t know, will be offered with a six-speed manual gearbox and an optional DSG dual-clutch one, allowing it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, for the Scirocco, and 7.8 for the heavier Eos. But you’ll also get better fuel economy with this new model, as it will do a combined cycle of 7.4 liters/100 km (31.8 mpg) in the Scirocco and even better on the Eos, at 7.2 liters/100 km (32.7 mpg).

Overall, this is definitely a great idea from Volkswagen, and will most certainly affect the sales of the GTI in favor of the Scirocco.
