Other (notable) standard items offered across both models are the 18-inch Los Angeles rims which remain unchanged from before, automatic headlights, automatic folding side mirrors and a 180-degree reverse camera.
Inside, the biggest change to the cabin is new Black Claudio leather upholstery that’s exclusively for the Allure Plus model, along with LED cabin mood lighting, one-touch folding rear seats, 8-way power adjustable seats with memory function and an auto dimming rear view mirror.
