Mechanically, the car is offered with either a hybrid variant as well as a normal petrol variant. The hybrid variant uses the brand's familiar Sport Hybrid i-DCD powertrain which is made up of a 108bhp 1.5-litre i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle engine, a 28bhp electric motor built into a seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox, and a lithium-ion battery. Total output is said to be 133bhp and it will be able to do 34km/L when driven wisely.
Meanwhile, the petrol 1.5-litre direct-injection DOHC i-VTEC engine gets mated to a CVT gearbox and produces 130bhp. Both variants are available with all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive.
Like its predecessor, the new Shuttle seats five and has a boot space of 570 litres. With the rear seats folded down, the length can be extended as far as 1.84 metres which also corresponds to a luggage space of 1,141 litres. The car also offers a flat floor and is equipped with two basket on the backside of the rear seats. When not needed, they can be folded flat.
