There is an option for Front Wheel Drive (FWD) or All-Wheel Drive (AWD). The 2.0-liter engine provides with 245 hp power and 275 pound-feet of torque. The V6 provides with a whopping 280 hp.

Crash protection is top-notch and it has earned a 5-star rating for front and side end crash. The transmission works quite nicely, though sometimes it can be a bit sluggish to respond.
