However, only the XLE edition offers the EV Mode, which is ideal for quick city trips. This base model also runs on a continuously variable transmission. Tuned for more spirited performance, a six-speed automatic gearbox with the Direct-Shift endorsement is standard on the high-end trim. Additionally, the Adaptive Variable Suspension enhances performance without hindering comfort.
