However, power isn't the only aspect of performance that this trim level focuses on. With its active front air dam (which automatically kicks in at higher speeds), you'll enjoy reduced drag for improved efficiency.

Speaking of automatic, the electronic parking brake can put it in P with the simple pull of your finger, rather than your arm; not only is this motion convenient, it feels very cool, too.
