Are you a smart shopper who’s always on the hunt for a bargain? Then take a closer look at the LX. You’ll adore its affordable starting MSRP of just $22,000, and this budget-friendly pick doesn’t scrimp on style. Its 185-hp 2.4L engine generates up to 36 mpg on the highway, so you’ll also save tons on fueling costs!

LX 1.6T

What if you want a bargain, but also want a sportier feel than the LX? The LX 1.6T fits the bill with its 1.6L turbocharged engine and 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This sedan also provides a few extra luxuries, like leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather-appointed gear shift knob.


Do you consider yourself tech-savvy? Then you’ll adore the highly connected EX trim. This fantastic model introduces high-tech features like UVO eServices, displayed on a 7-inch display screen. Plus, you can integrate your smartphone with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay!


If you want a killer engine that will make your heart race, then the SX is the model for you. This trim is equipped with the 2.0L turbocharged I4 engine, which produces a whopping 245 hp! Additionally, your driving experience is even more intuitive with the LED Dynamic Bending Light headlights and voice-command navigation system.

SX Limited

What if you want it all: the powerhouse performance, the cutting-edge technology, and the deluxe features? Then the SX Limited is the only choice. This model includes the 245-hp turbocharged engine and plenty of tech amenities, but it adds a host of exclusive features as well. Listen to the Harman/Kardon Quantum Logic audio system over ten speakers and you’ll wonder how you ever drove without it.
