A variety of different engines will be available and petrol choices include a 1.4-liter TSI with 125 PS (92 kW) as well as a 2.0-liter TSI with 180 PS (132 kW).  Diesel fans will able to order a 2.0-liter TDI engine that has outputs of 150 PS (110 kW) or 184 PS (135 kW).

Models equipped with the 1.4-liter TSI engine will be available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission but the other variants can be equipped with an optional six-speed DSG gearbox.

Pricing starts at £23,135 (RRP OTR) and Volkswagen says the special editions are "great value for money" as they only cost £550 more than the standard GT and R-Line variants despite featuring an assortment of styling upgrades.
