The trim LX features 16-inch alloy wheels fitted with 215/70R16 silica tires low-rolling resistance, door handles (body-color), tinted glass, side mirrors (adjustable) having side mirror indicators, turning the signal.
Additionally, the EX has alloy wheels 18-inch fitted with silica tires 235/55R18, body-color basic heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, roof rails, chrome door handles and body trim plus a radiator grille, chrome-accented.
