The range is powered by a single engine, a 2.4-liter turbocharged Boxer paired to an 8-speed transmission and manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters. The engine develops 260 horsepower and 277 lb.ft. of torque.

The $39,345 Limited comes with a few extras, including leather-trimmed upholstery, LED fog lights, 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and second-row retractable sunshades.
The top of the range Touring will sell from $45,045 and finishes off the range with chrome door handles, front underguard and rear bumper protector, and new power-folding exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals.
