The larger oval chrome tailpipe accents the car’s performance capability, and a retractable power antenna contributes to the car’s clean lines. Inside, the instrument panel graphics use fine gradations in the gauges for a sophisticated appearance. The driver can also shift gears via steering wheel-mounted buttons.
