What’s New for ’11
The exterior is updated with new front and rear fascias, tail lights and fog lamps, a total of five new wheel designs and darker tint on the sunroof.
Changes inside include a new beige headliner, black matte trim to replace last year’s silver accents, a new steering wheel and standard Sirius satellite radio with a complimentary 1-year subscription. A navigation system and Bluetooth cell-phone connectivity are new options.
Both engines crank out more horsepower than their predecessors; the naturally aspirated engine thanks to improved lubrication and reduced friction losses, and the turbocharged engine thanks to the addition of variable valve timing.
