Acceleration from 0-to-60 mph is done in mere six seconds. Standard Haldex AWD with Instant Traction provides the best possible grip on wet, slippery or completely dry roads. To give drivers in cold climate extra comfort; three-spoke steering wheels can now be specified with electric heating. Cars with automatic transmission can get paddle shifters that give the driver the opportunity to shift gear manually with both hands on the wheel.
