Its smaller-than-average, turbocharged engine delivers tons of power while conserving fuel, while its 3-Mode Drive System and 6-Speed Manual Transmission give you precision control over your vehicle’s behavior.
Single Scroll MHI TD04 Turbo: Most drivers tend to assume that a car with 306 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque won’t be able to deliver satisfying fuel economy.
