The engine produces 170 PS (125 kW) of power and 280 N·m (207 lbf·ft) of torque between 1650-3200 rpm. Other engines include two 1.4 L Family 0 petrol with 120 PS (88 kW) and 140 PS (103 kW) both with 200 Nm (220 Nm with overboost) and 2.0 L CDTI diesel with 165 PS (121 kW) and 380 N·m (280 lbf·ft).
