It has many options including the most incredible power seats I've ever tested (They are 8-way and better than Lexus in my judgement). It has lots of trunk room (thanks to a strategically positioned spare tire and a separate compartment for the CD player). It has a dual range transmission (performance and normal selectable by a switch). The engine is a 3.0 liter V6 producing 200 hp and 192 lb-ft of torgue. It will do 0-60 in 8.2 seconds. The model I looked at had 16 inch cromed alloy wheels. This is a car for people who have a little more bias toward performance, luxury and materialism than precision fit and finish. The model I looked at was a model priced at about $35,000. They range at between about $30,000 and $37,000.
