The audio system features 4 speakers.

The SV trim level upgrades to alloy wheels, and adds roof rails. The SV features a power driver's seat and dual-zone automatic climate control. The audio system features a 5-in. display and 6 speakers. The SL trim level adds 18-in. wheels, a power liftgate, heated mirrors, and fog lights.
