Only the top-spec Titanium+ variant gets 17-inch alloys. 

Moving to the interiors, only the Titanium+ variant gets leather upholstery, while 60/40 split rear seat is available on the top 2 Titanium variants. The 8.0-inch floating touchscreen infotainment screen is available only on the Titanium trims. The lower Trend trims get a 6.5-inch touchscreen instead. The base model misses out on the touchscreen unit, SYNC 3 with voice control and steering mounted controls. 

Features like rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and rear-view camera are only available on the Titanium+ trim, while engine start/stop button and Smart Entry is offered on both Titanium variants.
