Select Features

The Select trim starts at just $22,850. It, as well as Preferred and Premium trims, is powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that produces 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. FWD is standard, but AWD is available. The Select inherits all the features from the 2.0 and 2.5 S, such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection, among many others. The Select trim adds dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear-seat armrest with integrated cupholders, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

Preferred Features

The Preferred trim starts at $24,500. It is a relatively modest upgrade, featuring a few comfort additions. Notably, this trim gains a moonroof, heated front seats, and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat.

Premium Features

The Premium trim starts at $27,000 and is the last non-Turbo trim. It adds many features, including genuine leather upholstery, integrated navigation, a 12-speaker Bose stereo system, a heads-up display, adaptive headlights, traffic sign recognition, paddle shifters, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
