Changes that may happen under the hood may include some power boosters, and fuel saving technologies. However, the base engine will continue to be the same. It is a 2.0-liter horizontally opposed 4-cylinder unit capable to deliver up to 200 hp and 151 pound-feet of torque. Its transmission choices remain the same, which means customers will be able to choose between two 6-speeders – manual and automatic with shift paddles. Fuel economy is rated at 22/30/25 mpg city/highway/combined when combined with the manual gearbox and 25/34/28 mpg city/highway/combined with the automatic.
