The vehicle’s design was created at Fiat’s Style Centre.

The vehicle’s engine range includes a diesel unit and two petrol powerplants. The first is a 1.3 liter Multijet that delivers 90 hp and 201 Nm of torque, while returning a fuel economy of 48 mpg (4.9 liters per 100 km) and emitting 129 grams of CO2 per km. The entry-level petrol unit has a capacity of 1.4 liters and delivers 78 hp & a maximum torque of 115 Nm. It emits 150 grams of CO2 per km and returns a fuel consumption of 37.3 mpg (6.3 liters per 100 km).
