Consecrated structure, spacious interior and high performance. Assembled on the versatile MQB Modula Strategy - which allows high construction flexibility thanks to its variable parameters (among them, the wheelbase) - the Nivus offers internal space ideal to carry up to five occupants with comfort.
It is 4,266 mm long, 1,757 mm wide, 1,493 mm high and has a 2,566 mm wheelbase. The luggage compartment is a reference among compact hatches and even market compact sport-utes (SUVs), with a 415-liter capacity.This benefit is due to an extremely functional design, with a coupé-style body and benefitted by a longer overhang. The trunk lid can be opened through one of VW Play's 'virtual buttons'.
High performance, low fuel consumption and driving pleasure are the main characteristics of the Nivus' powertrain. The engine is the celebrated flex-fuel three-cylinder 200 TSI, with direct fuel injection.This engine delivers a maximum power up to 128 cv (94 kW) and 20.4 m.kgf of torque, when fueled with ethanol. The transmission is a six-speed automatic. The 200 TSI engine is manufactured in the São Carlos (SP) plant and currently equips the models Polo, Virtus and T-Cross, with excellent customer satisfaction.
