When the 2018 LX and EX models are side-by-side the most significant differences are the wheel details and the features available inside the cabin. Both are equipped with a 181-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and standard front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional on both models. That said, the LX and EX also come with a variety of technologies, including a 5-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, a six-speaker sound system, a CD player, driver-selectable driving modes, rear privacy glass, automatic headlights and much more. The LX is also available with an optional Popular package with roof rails, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats and a 7-inch Uvo touchscreen interface. 

Moving up to the EX model carries over all the features and technologies from the LX and adds heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert, leather upholstery, a rear USB charging port, foglights and much more. Like the LX, the EX is available with optional packages, including a Premium and Sport Appearance.
