I know UK gets the detuned 2.0L, but how did they managed to reduce power without reducing torque?
Power and torque are curves on a graph. They only quote peak values. So torque peaking at higher RPM produces more power, while torque peaking at lower RPM produces less power, but torque can be the same in both cases.

Think a diesel engine, it has high torque, but low power, because torque peaks early and starts to drop from say 3000rpm.
