The Platinum is already the highest available trim so it comes with all the best features!

The price for a Platinum model is in the luxury tax bracket, so it may be wise to consider the Limited model which will keep the tax at 12% if you are purchasing in BC.

These are the key features that you get exclusive on the Platinum and if you don’t see value in them, you should be fine going with the Limited: 12.3″ touch screen with slide gesture, digital display rearview mirror, 360 bird’s-eye-view camera and reverse auto-tilting side mirrors.

Also, the Platinum is the only trim that has the middle row captain’s chairs. If you rather have 8 seats instead of just 7, the Limited is a good option too.

Be sure to check out all the trims and their differences before deciding!
