Are you looking for something with a little more bells and whistles? When you move up to the Sport Touring trim level, you’ll find fog lights, a remote start, and a rear spoiler. These are all added to the features that are already available in the base model and Preferred trim levels. You can also pick up an optional seven-speaker Bose sound system and navigation system.
