The SuperAce Mint is fitted with a 70 PS 1.4-litre DICOR (Direct Injection Common Rail) BS4 diesel engine which delivers a flat torque over a wide range of engine rpm (1,800 – 3,000 rpm) in order to minimise turbo lag and increase vehicle’s pickup in all gears. Fuel economy is rated 17.9 km/l.
The SuperAce Mint has a loading area length of 2630 mm (8 ft. 7 in.), the longest in its segment.

The larger diameter and greater friction area of the clutch enhances clutch performance, the company said in its statement..

Aesthetically, body coloured bumper and standard wheel caps fitted on the wheels give a decent visual appeal, while the standard power steering and the standard blower make driving comfortable. Adjustable driver and co-driver fabric seats with headrests and HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) features are also available.
