Noise reduction is another area that the makers of this car show their expertise. The firewall has extra sound deadening and this coupled with the high-pressure fuel line helps to eliminate noise from the cabin of the engine. The injector thickening noise is reduced by the insertion of rubber between the engine and fuel line.

There is also the eco mode feature. This mode not only reduces the sensitivity of the throttle when it is selected, it also makes the transmission to upshift early by switching to an algorithm that is fuel conscious. Downshifting is resisted when the eco mode is selected.
