  • Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH)

    When rounding a curve at night, the illumination direction of the headlights move left or right according to the steering wheel to ensure visibility.

    2.5i SPORT, 2.0XT and 2.0D SPORT models are equipped with multi-spoke 18-inch aluminium-alloy wheels and 225/55R18 tyres.

  • Automatic Rain-sensing Windshield Wipers

    Available automatic windshield wipers detect rainfall on the glass and adjust their wiping intervals and speed accordingly.

  • Headlamp Washers

    Pop-up washers use a high-pressure spray to help keep the headlamps at their peak performance in poor weather.

  • Fog Lamps

    Multi-reflector fog lamps also serve as daytime running lights and emit a wide, flat beam that reflects less glare in fog for added safety.

    The large, internally sliding sunroof with manual sunshade delivers a panoramic view and fresh breezes for front and rear passengers.

    Your key fob gives you easy keyless access. Simply grip the door handles to unlock them, and start the engine with a button. Even without your fob, a 5-digit PIN code can unlock the doors.

    Standard electronic cruise control allows the driver to maintain a preset speed on the open road. Located on the steering wheel, the controls are finished in a modern dark-metallic sheen.

  • Three 12V Power Outlets

    Auxiliary power is at your fingertips with a 12-volt power outlet located in the centre console, centre console box and cargo space.

  • One-touch Folding Switches

    Switches in the cargo area automatically fold each of the 60/40-split rear seatbacks, expanding the luggage space with remarkable ease.

    This feature conveniently helps keep the temperature inside where you want it. It also allows the driver and the front passenger to set different temperatures.

  • High-grade Multifunction Display

    Located conveniently in the instrument panel, informative car vitals are displayed at a touch of a button. It also features advanced environmental performance and efficiency—even allowing you to compare the efficiency between different trips.

  • Touchscreen Control

    Use the touchscreen to easily manage your music, just as you would on your smartphone. Simply connect your smartphone through Bluetooth® (*1) or the USB port, and you can choose your music right on the touchscreen.
