The LX adds 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, body-colour side mirrors and door handles, roofline spoiler, power locks with keyless entry, cruise control, and rear speakers.
The Sport adds 16-inch alloy wheels, front and rear stabilizer bars, security system, chrome headlight bezels, chrome exhaust finisher, fog lamps, underbody spoiler kit, leather-wrapped steering wheel, six speakers and USB jack.
