Under the hood is a supercharged, 3.4-liter, V6 engine with 250 horsepower. Perhaps the most intriguing advance in the Bengal is its sleek dashboard, which lacks the clutter of traditional gauges and controls. In the future, controls will be projected onto the windshield, and we'll tell our car exactly what we want to see.
