The additions in the gasoline sniffing beauty are the new  fuel injection and  catalyst system. Fuel economy is something  the vehicle primarily stands for.

With ethanol being the main fuel, the makers have made a few alterations to help the car adapt to its abrasive nature, the company has said. The changes include some reinforcement of the fuel pump, pillar cap and fuel  line.  A gasoline tank assistance system has also been put in place so as to help engine ignition at low temperatures.

Ethanol being an abundant commodity in Brazil,  the sales strategy team at the Korean car maker has decide to specially design the vehicle on show for the Brazilian market.  Brazil is No 2 in the world in terms of ethanol production.

Wouldn’t  you also want an FFV on your roads?
