The unit comprises of an aluminium cylinder head joined to an open deck aluminium block and is the lightest diesel engine in its class. Additionally, every rotating part has been carefully maximized to reduce their friction. This in turn provides better fuel efficiency.
Moreover, a new Adaptive Damper System (ADS) will help to enhance stability and comfort. The system features three settings - comfort, normal and dynamic. In the car are also featured advanced active safety systems, which will deliver a high standard of safety for the driver, passengers and pedestrians.
