Compared to the Jazz, the car has a longer rear overhang which will endow it with a superior cargo volume, much higher than the 354 liters offered by the hatchback (884 liters when the rear seats are folded down).

The product website talks mainly about a hybrid all-wheel drive variant which combines a 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine working together with an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery pack and a dual-clutch transmission, whose fuel efficiency is rated at 36.4 km/l. A 1.5-liter engined regular Shuttle in a FWD configuration would also be retailed as an entry level variant.
