Grip control traction
Initially, two engines which boast excellent CO2 emissions will be available, a 1.2 turbo petrol and a 1.6 diesel – a real plus for tax savings and economic efficiency. Both engines can be combined with a modern six-speed manual or friction-optimised six-speed automatic transmission and come with start/stop as standard.
Available as an option, electronic grip control also ensures power is safely transferred to the road, providing top traction all year round and on every surface.
