  • New 18-inch alloy wheels, a stiffer chassis, and a 4-wheel independent suspension for enhanced traction and a smoother ride.
  • Smaller and more potent turbocharged engines for more dynamic driving.
  • New 272-HP108 VTEC® Turbo engine for an additional 66 horsepower and 98 pound-feet of torque.
  • A sportier exterior that takes design cues from the BMW 5-Series and Genesis G70.
