A new engine balancer shaft is standard on all models with a continuously variable transmission, while all models receive improved sound insulation materials. New tech features include a 6.1-inch touch-screen with a backup camera on the SE trim; and a new navigation system with a 7-inch touch-screen, voice command, 3D mapping, point-of-interest info and real-time traffic with the SE Touring Package.
