The base trim is available either with a 2.5 liter inline 4 or a 3.5 L V6. These are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and available as either a front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The heated and power-adjustable front seats and 8 speaker system make this car very feature-loaded. 

Hybrid XLE

This variant has an electric motor that works in tandem with the 2.5-liter Inline 4 engine. It has SofTex seating upholstery and 17-inch silver painted alloy wheels. The dual-zone automatic climate control makes it more suitable for posh buyers. 

XSE Nightshade

Available only with a 3.5 liter V6 which is mated to an 8 speed automatic, the Nightshade trim is for people more focused on luxury. The XSE Nightshade is an FWD only and comes with 19-inch wheels.

Hybrid XSE

The perforated Ultrasuede upholstery and the power tilt features make it stand out from the rest of the lineup. You also get wireless charging and a sliding sunshade.
