The price jump from a Sport to a Touring—around $3,500—isn't minor, but it includes the highly desirable upgrade to a SkyActiv 2.5-liter engine with 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the four-cylinder delivers 25mpg city/32 mpg highway with front-wheel drive, or 24 mpg city/30 mpg highway with optional all-wheel drive.
Standard features build on Sport specifications with a six-way power driver's seat, blind spot monitoring system, 5.8-inch color touchscreen display with rearview backup camera, AM/FM/CD/MP3-compatible stereo with automatic level control and six speakers, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio capability, HD radio, Pandora radio compatibility, upgraded premium cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knobs, 40/20/40 dual-split folding rear seatback and rear privacy glass.
Options include the Touring Technology Package with navigation, HID headlights, adaptive lighting and smart city braking system. A Bose and Moonroof package includes Surround Sound and nine speakers.
