Talking about the features, the concept has been equipped with a direct injection mechanism, a Start/Stop system and an Active Cylinder Management system which deactivates the two cylinders of the engine at lower speeds which helps the car to deliver great fuel efficiency. The car also has a coasting function which enables the DSG transmission to decouple from the engine, as-soon-as the driver releases the accelerator pedal, as a result it minimizes the mechanical drag.
