The automaker's engineers concentrated on the following areas while designing the vehicle: handling and dynamics, fuel efficiency, and vehicle weight.

The latest car also features a class-leading 0.29 coefficient of drag. Initial launching of the car will feature a 167 hp (125kW) 2.5-liter MZR petrol motor, and will be offered with self-leveling bi-xenon headlights, adjustable globes, keyless entry and push-button start, Bluetooth interface and mobile phone incorporation, a multi-function-display with audio adjustments, trip computer and navigation information, a power-adjustable driver seat including a memory function and a ten-speaker stereo of the Bose brand.
