The gasoline model is equipped with a 1.5-liter direct-injected DOHC i-VTEC engine with CVT, which generates 132ps of maximum output and 15.8kgm of maximum torque. The fuel-efficiency is 21.8km/liter (JC08 mode). As with the hybrid model, it also comes available with 4WD.
The all-new Shuttle features Hondaâ€™s Solid Wing Face design concept with a wider and more advanced appearance, particularly with the uninterrupted flow from the front grille to the headlights. The hybrid model offers blue metallic trim on the front grille for a sophisticated look, while the gasoline model is equipped with a sporty mesh grille.
