Moving on to the juicy bits of the story, the powertrain options start with a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine with 60 kW (81.5 metric hp) and 115 Nm (85 lb-ft) of torque, paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. And then you have a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that pumps out 81 kW (110 metric hp) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque; this engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. And yes, there’s no automatic option yet.
