Step up to the AWD version, and you will shell out $38,640. The cars both have the same 2.0L turbo four that makes 268hp and 258 lb-ft of torque paired with an 8-speed automatic. The car does include adaptive suspension as standard along with 18-inch wheels. LED headlights, power heated seats, and more.
Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
