There is also a flat-bottom steering wheel with the same pattern. It feels exclusive and you can really feel the luxury vibe in the interior particularly with its aluminum accents. We think that it is a big move from the company and they have executed it very cleverly. What we like about the interior is the continuity of all parts. It feels that all parts from the front all the way to the back are treated equally. They feel consistent. There is a soft-touch dashboard. Overall, the premium trimming is well-done.

There are two upholstery options, which are cloth and V-Tex leatherette. They are available across models. They come in a long list of additional features, like pedals, shifter, dash and door trim. Meanwhile, the drivetrain for the new series is pretty decent. The new entry level comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It is accountable for moving the car with a power of 210 HP and 207 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers do not seem too impressive. Well, for a compact sedan, the engine is pretty good.

It is paired with a six-speed manual. It is not the only option. Others come as complementary features for different trim levels. How many models are available? As far as we know, there are at least two trim levels, probably more if the company takes another direction in the future. As for now, there are SE and SEL trim levels.
