The first generation of cars was equipped with two types of engines:
2.7-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 160 hp with a torque of 241 N*m. It should be noted that the engine for such a large car was weak (up to 100 km / hour - 12 seconds), but on the other hand had a low fuel consumption (about 9.5 liters on the highway and 13.5 liters in the city).
3-liter diesel unit with a power of 163 horsepower and a torque of 343 N*m. Equipped with such an engine a car could accelerated up to 100 km / hour in 11.7 seconds, and consumed 7.1 and 11.4 liters of diesel while driving on the highway and in the city, respectively.
The basic equipment was rear-wheel drive, but if desired, it was possible to replace the system with an all-wheel drive system for an additional price. As for the switch box, the choice was between the 4-speed automatic transmission and the 5-speed mechanics.
