You can pair the turbocharged engine with either a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission. Although both engines have an output of 138 hp, the turbocharged engine delivers more torque. If you are a fuel-conscious driver, then it is advisable to go for the turbocharged engine with a manual transmission. The base engine is satisfactory for city driving.
