With this SEL model, it starts with performance. The 3.0L V6 engine on this variant issues great “get-up-and-go” as a result of its 221 horsepower output at 6,250 revolutions per minute (RPM). Torque is similarly impressive at 205 lb.-ft. at 4,800 RPM. Plus, mileage doesn’t suffer, thanks to an EPA rating of 28 MPG highway/20 city. You can confidently cruise the roads of Bellevue, Renton, and Seattle without making many pit stops.
The interior of the vehicle is well-outfitted, too. Driver lumbar support and premium cloth seat trim make for a comfortable ride. Heated mirrors aid in visibility during the colder months of the year, while the six-disc CD/MP3 player improves the quality of road trips no matter the season. Finally, storage capacity is bountiful, as well. At 15.8 cubic feet, the trunk is larger than most competitors in its class.
