It’s paired with a eight-speed automatic transmission that shifts seamlessly and has overdrive. The Smart Shift and Drive system learns your driving habits and automatically selects Eco, Normal, or Sport driving mode to suit your style.
You can achieve up to 20 mpg for city driving and 27 mpg on the highway. Four-wheel independent suspension ensures that bumps in the road are smoothed out to provide a relaxed, comfortable ride.
