Deducing anything can be tricky, I have come across an early CSE without any turbo, i.e. the injection model. The CS is also well equipped as you would expect, so even this distinction can be tricky. The differences depends on model year, the later model tends to be better equipped than earlier ones. If you are buying second hand, better check the actual engine and equipment level.
