No, it's a Deka ETX12 agm.  Lots of Festiva guys use them, both with the original 1.3 and with 1.6 swaps.

That thing is only 180 cold cranking amps. Is that really enough to start the engine with? If so, that's fantastic. It looks like it weighs only a few pounds. Where do you have it mounted?

I just searched the battery it weighs 4.3kg or 9.48 pounds, it's got me wondering how heavy my battery is! I'm gonna weigh it!
