It includes user customizable settings for such things as powertrain performance, suspension and steering.

Base models of this mid-size crossover are propelled from 2.-l I-4 engine. New SUV could come as a 7-seat model in some higher trims, and these vehicles could use larger engines. Some of them could be 2.0-liter TDI turbo-diesel four-cylinder or turbocharged Miller-cycle 2.0-liter unit with direct injection. Diesel power trains are certain for US market.
