Under the hood, the car won’t see a massive bump in power, but one could expect more mileage, courtesy to the dualjet system and regenerative braking coupled to the same 1.2 litre petrol with a higher compression ratio. The car is rated at a decent 91 PS@6000rpm of power and gets a 3Nm of torque rise that make up for 118 Nm @4400rpm.
