Only one variant is available for this new model, and it’s still powered by a 1.4-liter K14B gasoline mill that generates 91hp and 130Nm of torque and is mated to a four-speed automatic. No more stick shifts for this one, though, folks.

Standard safety features included in the package are ABS with electronic brake force distribution, dual airbags, and a reversing camera. Color options include Mineral Gray Metallic, Pure White Pearl, and Super Black Pearl.
