Now in a easy 3 trims starting from the base Komfort to the sport-tuned Sport and lavishly wearing Professional, the removed Lux improve to the similarly softly stopped Komfort simply leaves a $5,000 gap between the remaining set of best divisions for his or her massive distinction in feature content material-but in addition foliage area for universal feature upgrades.
Every single Eos now gets a navigation program and V-dub’s Car-Web (which is much like Chevy’s OnStar and other recent infotainment techniques). The Sport benefits keyless entrance and a press-button beginner over the final year, and the Executive picks up in which the Lux kept with all its features from 2013 plus a greater touchscreen.
