We Recommend

If the base 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine would be enough for your needs, we would suggest you definitely go for the base trim. The Base trim also gets great standard features like bi-xenon headlights, adjustable throttle response and suspension, 19-inch wheels, and many more. But if you crave the V8 power then you could go for the mid Supercharged trim.
