What drives it? A 2,349cc V6 engine with continuously variable valve-timing control, electronic fuel-injection control, an electronically controlled four-speed automatic gearbox, power-assisted rack and pinion steering, independent suspension, disc brakes with 205/65 R16 tyres.

How fast is it? Dealers can't say, but it's fast enough for Hong Kong's highways.

How safe is it? An impact-absorbing body with crushable zones, dual-front, side and curtain airbags, active head restraints, dynamics and traction control systems, adaptive lights and more.

How thirsty is it? 11.2km per litre on a 70-litre tank. Dealers have yet to provide CO2 emission data.

Nice touches: The ioniser, keyless-go and that reclining front seat.
