The engine has a distinctive sound thanks in part to the supercharger, though it’s ultimately engineered for a refined driving experience. A 6-speed transmission is available in the driver’s choice of manual or automatic, and all units are rear-wheel drive.

The Performance Traction Management System helps keep engine output in check against current traction conditions, too. The award-winning OnStar system, xenon lights, and distraction-busting Bluetooth technology further enhance safety.
