The first powertrain is a 2.0L I-4 engine that gets up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. This comes with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, but an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) is also available.

The second option is a 1.6L turbocharged I-4 engine that can get up to 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. To manage this extra power, you’ll have a sporty 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
