This system features two electric motors and a lithium-ion battery pack and works in conjunction with a 2,0-litre i-VTEC engine capable of producing 135 kW and 315 N.m.
In respect to efficiency, the front-wheel-drive version is claimed to sip 5,3 L/100 km compared with 5,5 L/100 km for the all-wheel-drive variant.
