The engine is paired with a six-speed iMT transmission as standard and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic unit is an option with claimed fuel economy of 20 kmpl and 20.25 kmpl respectively. On the mechanical side, the suspension has been retuned for improved handling while the exhaust note is sportier than in the standard model.
