There’s only one powertrain on the menu, namely a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque via a CVT. All-wheel drive comes standard. The lineup includes Convenience, Touring, Limited and Premier models. For 2021, the company has made improvements to the EyeSight safety system.
