I believe that a VR6 Jetta is 14km/h faster on top speed and slower of a sprint due to aerodynamics and weight.

Hi. I think the 0-200kmh time is 10sec or more to high. Look at the golf 4motion, it has the same power/weight. The cars weight is also to high, look at carfolio that is more accurate i wud say. Thanks bye.
