While performance enthusiasts won't be thrilled, the 875cc two-cylinder engine produces 65 (48 kW / 65 hp) to 105 PS (78 kW / 104 hp). More importantly, thanks to stop/start technology, the car is expected to carry a fuel economy rating of 4.5 l/100km (52 mpg US).

A launch is scheduled for the 2012 model year and will reportedly coincide with a slight facelift.
