The Premium adds automatic xenon headlamps, fog lights, two-position driver memory, perforated leather-trimmed upholstery, and premium sound system with XM Satellite Radio and USB connector.

The Technology package adds a six-CD stereo, reverse camera, and navigation system with bilingual voice recognition.

The V6 Premium and Technology models build on the respective four-cylinder Premium and Technology models, but add 18-inch alloy wheels.
