The LX Popular Plus Package includes the above equipment and adds a new alloy wheel design, LED taillights and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The S adds a new 16-inch alloy wheel and the Technology Package now includes a sunroof, while last year’s Premium Package has been discontinued. The EX sedan now comes standard with Advanced Driver Assistance Features such as Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist.
