Transmission options are limited to a 6-speed automatic, and the only engine available is a a 2.5-liter four-cylinder instead of he V6 that came with the old car. This four-banger produces 176 hp and 172 lb-ft (232.9 Nm) of torque, reasonable for a car that’s lost a bit of weight.
The most efficient model is the front-wheel drive one, which gets EPA estimates of 31 mpg highway and 24 mpg city. Add all-wheel drive and that drops to 29 and 22 mpg respectively.
There will be three trim levels available in three trim levels, Le, XLE and Limited, with prices starting at $23,300 for the base model with FWD and going up to $28,410 for a top-spec Limited with AWD.
Standard equipment includes Display Audio with a 6.1-in. touchscreen, AM/FM/CD, Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX mini-jack, and six speakers. For a uniform esthetic, the Display Audio, as well as primary and secondary gauges, features Clear Blue Illumination.
