This crossbar surrounds a glass-covered Infotainment system, digital air conditioning controls and a Digital Cockpit, which together form the main cockpit elements with all displays and controls on a single visual and operational axis.
The Tarok Concept is powered by a 1.4-litre 110 kW / 150 PS four-cylinder TSI engine. It which can be driven both with pure ethanol (E100) as well as a gasoline-ethanol blend (E22).
The TSI engine in the Tarok Concept is also combined with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive.
