  • The engine is a 2.2-liter mHawk 4-cylinder diesel engine that is detuned for producing max power of 120 BHP and 280 Nm of torque. It also has the micro-hybrid tech and has a 5-speed gearbox.

  • Safety equipment includes dual front airbags, ABS, panic brake indication, seat belt reminder, and speed alert.
