A new 55kW 1.1-litre turbodiesel unit is available too with Hyundai claiming an average fuel consumption of 4.3 litres per 100km.

The suspension set-up is Macpherson struts in the front and coil springs coupled with torsion bar in the rear.

It has a wheelbase of 2 380mm which Hyundai says is the biggest in its class resulting in good cabin space.
