Drivers will also be able to cycle through the six-speed automatic transmission via the shift paddles. The 2.0-litre SkyActiv-G has outputs of 162 hp and 213 Nm of torque.
Meanwhile, the 2.5L sees changes to the aesthetics with gloss black finishing on the 19-inch rims and side mirrors. The interior meanwhile is receives burgundy red on the leather seats as well as stitching on the dashboard and door trim.
