The turbocharged 2.0 litre four cylinder engine is located behind the cockpit and in front of the rear wheels with a transaxle configuration, connected to a five-speed manual gearbox.

With a power output of  250 bhp (186 kW ) and 250 lb/ft of torque, the powerplant is excellently suited to the MXT as it is compact and lightweight while delivering fantastic levels of high performance and drivability.

A bespoke engine management system was developed for performance driving: it has immediate throttle response and a consistent torque output throughout the rev range, while the turbo lag is unnoticeable. The shift lights at the top of the digital instrument cluster indicate the exact time to change gears, allowing the driver to make the most of engine performance.

Despite the impressive power figures, the MXT complies with Euro 5 emissions standards, and delivers an outstanding fuel consumption average of 25 miles per gallon.
