The simultaneous process enabled perfect of engines and transmissions, e.g. regard to implementation of the ECO start/stop which features as standard on all models.

Common features of the new systems are the use of state-of-the-art technologies for efficiency, very smooth high tractive power from low revs, sustainability in of impending emissions standards and low For the purposes of transverse installation the all of which are turbocharged, and the two transmissions are compactly designed, providing the with an exemplary small circle for a front-wheel drive of eleven metres. The engine and suspension disposes of a four-point system comprising engine transmission mount and two self-aligning This suspension system has designed specifically to meet the of the high-torque engines with to minimum noise levels.
