If you want power and fuel economy in the most affordable package, then the LX trims provides that, with 181 HP, the ability to tow up to 2,000 lbs., and a FWD fuel economy of 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway. The LX trim also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and has room in back for 60.1 cubic feet of cargo, which is nice for a small SUV.

Move up to the S trim and you get the same MPG and power as with the LX, but with more features, like larger wheels at 18 inches and roof rails to place items up there. The EX trim comes with more added features, such as a Smart Power Liftgate and available voice-command navigation, with the same MPG and cargo room and power as the LX and S trims.

The top-line SX Turbo trim jumps up a power class to 240 HP, with plenty of available features, like standard voice-command navigation, Smart Power Liftgate, and a standard panoramic sunroof, plus the next-level audio of an 8-speaker Harman/Kardon package. You also get larger tires for better grip on the road at 19 inches, standard.
