To harness the turbo-charged engine, state-of- the-art sound deadening and increased glass thickness allow for a quiet drive inside the cockpit. With a standard 7-inch touch screen display, the user-friendly system allows for voice-controlled music, calling, and navigation. The manual convertible top is easy to use and outclasses other two-seaters that have heavier systems. Available options include rear assist cameras and a nine-speaker premium Bose® speaker system.
