The EX and SX trims can be had with the same 175-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder, or a 190-hp 2.7-liter V6. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on the LX, while a Sportmatic five-speed automatic is available on the LX and standard on EX and SX trims. The SX upgrades to sport-tuned suspension, a black mesh grille, blacked-out headlights and hyper-silver 17" alloy wheels.
