LUXURIOUS CLASS-EXCLUSIVE FEATURES

Upgrading to the Premium Package (as with our test car) adds items like wood interior trim, heated rear seats, a driver’s memory seat with 4-way adjustability, and class-exclusive features like heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel and a panoramic sunroof – which might be the reason why headroom is so limited. A Technology Package then allows you to add Navigation and an impressive 8-speaker Infinity audio system that, as the folks from infinity showed us, can really pump out Sandstorm by Darude.

While not as fancy, even base models come well-equipped with items like driver’s power lumbar support, power windows and locks, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, a cooling glovebox, USB and Auxiliary jacks and Bluetooth compatibility with steering wheel controls. Plus, the addition of the automatic transmission adds cruise control and an Eco mode that upshifts sooner and downshifts later to improve fuel economy.

Those looking for more, like HID headlights, LED taillights, added power and an even more aggressive design will be able to get it later after the initial vehicle launches with the introduction of a turbocharged model in EX and a higher-grade SX trim.
