Both the Exora Prime and the Exora Bold Premium used the Campro CFE engine. This CFE engine puts out 138 hp at 5,000 rpm and 205 Nm of torque from 2,000 to 4,000 rpm from 1.6 litres.This CFE engine runs on the same 10:1 compression ratio as the CPS engine without forced induction, it has a stroke of 86 mm, 2 mm less than the CPS engine. The bore remains the same for both engines but it is not known if the stroke length is due to using a shorter con-rod or a different piston. The resulting displacement is 1561 cc instead of 1597 cc. Paired to a CVT gearbox, top speed is 185 km/h and 0-100 km/h is done in 13.3 seconds. Claimed fuel consumption is 7.8 litres per 100 km.
