The flagship Sentral SL will set you back $20,670 and in return you will be getting heated front seats, leather upholstery and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Optional goodies include an eight-speaker Bose audio system, push button ignition and dual-zone climate control.
Under the hood of all versions is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine developing 130 bhp (97 kW) and 173 Nm (128 lb-ft) channeled to the front wheels via a standard 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional CVT.
