Now, let’s talk about what’s behind that pedal. Modern turbocharged engines with direct fuel injection — petrol TSI — save fuel while retaining driving dynamics. And thanks to the turbocharging, there’s plenty of power in low RPM, where the engine is most commonly used.
When you buy a RAPID MONTE CARLO, you’re making a smart choice — for yourself and the environment. Green Tech~, standard across both petrol variants, features “Start Stop” and Brake Energy Recuperation. As long as your car battery is sufficiently charged, "Start Stop" automatically switches the engine off when stationary and starts it again when you want to drive off, while Brake Energy Recuperation uses kinetic energy to charge the car battery, when you apply the brakes.
~Reactivation of "Start Stop" will not occur in certain conditions.
