True, there's only one engine option: the 1.4 turbo.
It certainly is not a speed monster. Turbo power only kicks in at around 4000 rpm.
In automatic (D) gear it is sluggish, not much kick-down accelleration. In Manual (M) you will notice you can step on it's tail but don't forget to push the + button to shift (I tend to forget to do that in my excitement and the engine has no trouble getting high revs)
It does have high torque. Getting up a slope does not need shifting, only pressing the accelerator pedal further down.
