There are 6 petrol and 1 diesel variant available to both body styles, and there is also a plug-in hybrid available as well to both bodies.

For additional personalisation, buyers can choose from the Progressive Line or the AMG Line, and in the first year all engine variants also have the option to be trimmed in Edition 1 bits.
