The base trim, simply called the Legacy, starts at $24,395. The model includes cloth upholstery, adjustable front seats, and a 7-inch display infotainment system.

As for the engine, it’s a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. It gets 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, so it has a decent fuel economy on top of impressive performance.
The Premium is the second-level trim, which starts at $26,695. It features an 11.6-inch display, six-speaker audio, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Other features include dual-zone automatic climate control, 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, two rear USB ports and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
