The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Basic features consist of 18-inch wheels, LED tail lights, a boot lid spoiler, four tailpipes, leather seats, heated front seats, and wood finishes. Options include 19- or 20-inch wheels, automatic high-beam headlights, air-cooled front seats, a navigation system, and a powered rear sunshade.
Safety features included as standard are side-impact airbags and active head restraints for the front seats, anti lock brakes, and an electronic stability control system. Optional safety features are a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, a blind spot alert system, and a collision warning system.
