The SV adds 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, fog lamps, running boards, roof rack cross bars, heated seats, eight-way power driver’s seat, six-CD stereo with auxiliary input, and illuminated vanity mirrors.

The LE adds 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlamps, power sunroof, heated leather seats, four-way power passenger seat, six-CD Bose stereo system, XM satellite radio, and garage door opener.
