The engine range is made of units belonging to the new EA211 four-cylinder family, with 16 valves and exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head: there will be a 1.
4-liter producing 90 hp and a 1.

6-liter producing 110 hp, with average fuel consumption of 5.

0 liters per 100 kilometers respectively.
The new Santana is also 28% less polluting than the one it is about to replace.
