The gear change on the diesel variant can also be done manually with the paddle shifters. There is an option of all-wheel drive in the diesel variant. The other powerplant is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which is mated to a torque converter that produces 154 PS and 189 Nm of peak torque. However, the power in the petrol variant will be provided to the front wheels and there is no option of other drive systems.
