The F-Sport version has a 3D F-mesh pattern with black metallic coating and functional brake ducts.

The Remote Touch Interface on the center console also gains an enter button in the refresh. New interior colors include black and brown and the moonstone and ivory colors are replaced by a color called Chateau, a light shade with an ivory and grey scheme.
