Both of these engines work with an 8-speed automatic transmission and offer more than enough power for daily driving and passing and merging on the highway.

If you're looking for a more exciting performance, the N Line trim boasts a turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder that delivers 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is equipped with an 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission and paddle shifters.

Regardless of the engine you choose, you'll enjoy a comfortable ride and composed handling that tackles turns with ease and glides over bumps in the road.
