Available Nappa leather seats and wood trim add a sense of luxury. 

Clearly see the road ahead with tall windows, narrow pillars and a higher seating position with a centered steering wheel. An optional power moonroof opens up the cabin even more, while heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel an 8-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support ensure a pleasant ride.

The available 10-speaker Bose® audio system and interior ambient lighting just may make you want to take the long way home.
