You can get behind the wheel of this awesome and well-equipped crossover in the LS, LT, RS, and Premier trim levels.

Each trim is ready to hit the road in style with the option of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive and derives power from the 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.

The LS: This is the standard model at the entry-level price point that comes with a six-speaker audio system, keyless entry with push button starts, and 7.0-inch touch screen. You’ll be cruising with 17-inch aluminum wheels, heated power outside mirrors, four-way manual front seats, and premium cloth seat trim.

There’s also the 4.2-inch multi-color driver information display, deep-tinted rear glass, added comfort of an 8-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar control, and cargo area rear seat release levers. The rear-view camera and Teen Driver system both also come standard on the LT.

The RS trim level offers a variety of deluxe additions and several packages that provide extras with adventure and added comfort. The “Hit the Road” Package includes molded assist steps and roof racks for inspired explorers, and the Infotainment Package spruces things up with an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, 4 USB ports, heated steering wheel, and 120-volt household-style power outlet. The RS Leather Package adds sizzling visual accents such as Jet Black perforated leather-appointed seating, premium Bose 7-speaker audio, and a Driver seat back map pocket.
