At the heart of the beast is the latest-generation 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 300 PS and 400 Nm of torque. A more powerful 317 PS version will be sold in the US market. 

Though the engine is carried over from the previous generation, it runs a different 'Miller' combustion cycle now, which required beefier internals as well as redesigned intake ports, combustion chambers, camshaft timing, ignition system and exhaust gas routing.

Channelling power to the ground is the BMW xDrive AWD system which is fitted with a mechanical limited-slip differential built into the transmission. The xDrive system is able to transmit up to 26 percent of its power to the front wheels depending on traction requirements.

Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
