It will be powered by either a 3.5-litre V6 gasoline direct injection petrol engine or a 3.2-litre direct injection diesel, the first time the engine has appeared in Europe. The 3.5GDI delivers 199bhp at 5,000rpm and 234lb-ft torque at 4,000rpm, compared to the diesel's 162bhp/3,800 and 275lb-ft of torque at 2,000rpm. The petrol will be five-speed automatic only, while the diesel is five-speed manual or automatic.
Both three and five-door models are similar in height to previous models, but are slightly longer and wider. Prices have yet to be announced, but the current range costs from £20,425 to £40,300. Prices will be announced at the end of this month in time for an April launch.
