Strong, high-loading  construction

Inherently rigid box shape is made even stronger with durable body-on-frame construction

Traditional rear-wheel-drive puts the workload on a ruggedly solid rear axle

Truck-like payload to haul over 600kg in passengers or cargo

Efficient layout

Shorter than a sub-compact sedan but has the 3 seating rows and ample cargo space to transport as many as 8 adults and their luggage

Semi-forward driver’s position keeps the body short

Engine mounted under the front seats makes things spacious

Car-like handling

Semi-forward driver’s position puts the front seats behind (not on top of) the front wheels, making things less bouncy for the driver, more comfortable for everyone

Long 2.7m wheelbase and better weight balance of mid-front engine work together to deliver enhanced stability when turning

Hauling power

Powered by the strong yet compact A12 1.2liter gasoline engine

High compression and variable valve timing technology combine to produce 80hp and 108Nm of torque (well above the critical hundred mark for cargo haulers)

5-speed manual transmission has deep enough ratios on low gears to ensure ample torque when hauling a full load (even uphill), and sufficiently tall ratios on high gears for efficient cruising
