The Hybrid comes in one trim level with two option packages available. Standard equipment includes the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor to make 206 horsepower. Power is put through a six-speed automatic transmission, rather than a CVT transmission found in most hybrids. Also included are 16-inch alloy wheels, six airbags, ABS, stability control, power windows, mirrors and locks with remote entry and start, dual-zone automatic climate control, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio, Bluetooth and iPod/USB interface.
The Leather Package adds leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats and auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Ultimate Package adds to the Leather Package a panoramic sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, navigation system with traffic and weather, backup camera and a 10-speaker HD premium audio system.
