This Cyber Grey Grand Sport with less than 19,000 miles comes with the 4LT package which includes 2LT and 3LT items plus a leather wrapped two tone interior with Grand Sport embroidery at an original option cost of $7.705.

The 3LT option includes the Bose seven speaker audio, Bluetooth, cargo net and luggage shade, memory package, power steering and homelink.
2LT includes sport seats, six way passenger seat and power top.
