The keyword here is personalization. The designers of the fastback sports car have exploited the excellent location of the dashboard to give a very unique, customized look to your car. The dashboard now features a 12-inch screen right behind the wheel to give a clear vision to the driver. The tachometer has been moved to directly in front of the driving seat so that you can have a clear view of how fast the engine is performing.

It is powered by an amazing 2.3-litre EcoBoost revamped engine. Transmission is equally excellent since it offers 6-speed manual transmission. Rear wheel drive is also possible with the latest model.
