The vehicle was presented before two months and now it is available with two new engines. The first one is 2.0 litre twin turbo diesel and the second is 1.6 litre turbo petrol.

The 2.0 TTiD engine features twin turbocharging system (small and bigger turbo). It generates whopping 400Nm from just 1750RPM and has maximum power of 190hp. The power unit is extremely effective – it returns 47.1 mpg on combined cycle and emits just 159 g/km.

The 1.6T delivers 112hp per litre displacement, which positions it among the most powerful series production engines in its class. The small petrol engine generates 230Nm for 2200RPM to 5500RPM (including an ‘overboost' function). The maximum power is 180hp and accelerates the car from 0 to 62mph in 9.5 seconds. The small powerplant returns 36.2mpg and 179 g/km of CO2.

The 1.6T is available in Vector SE specification with front wheel drive and manual transmission.

The vehicle also features expanded high-tech options list and an exterior paint colour palette that is increased from 7 to 11 colours.

Last, but not least, you can order Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go, which enables the driver to select a constant cruising speed and automatically alters the chosen speed to maintain a safe gap to the vehicle on the road ahead.
