As a direct import from Japan, the car is quite pricy, costing RM97,888 for the basic manual version which is €24,100 at today's exchange rate. There's also a CVT model for those who want comfort instead of acceleration and are willing to pay RM102,888 or €25,400 at today's rate.

Both come with Suzuki's M16A 1.6-liter VVT engine good for 136 PS at 6,900 rpm and 160 Nm of torque. Both the CVT and the manual are said to sprint to 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds, but the manual has a higher top speed of 195 km/h.
