    You'd need a power hatch first and that adds weight (motor + strut + sensor & wiring for handsfree).

    Keep in mind that leather was almost not offered for 2010 because of weight. They were able to add the power driver's seat when they switched to SofTex (which is much lighter than leather... IIRC they said 50% lighter)

    It can only connect to one phone at a time so it will connect to the last phone it connected to if both phones are present.

    Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto are Apple's and Google's (respectively) in-car skin or interface within the head unit. Launching that program will give you limited access to the iPhone or Android phone interface for things such as phone, messages, music (built-in or Spotify or Pandora), Maps (google or apple maps depending on phone) and so on. It's a very basic interface and it allows the user to interact with the head unit more similar to the way they access the phone rather than having to learn the manufacturer's interface. (For Android users, it basically allows them to user Google Maps for navigation).

    Semi-gloss black console has been available with the black interior since mid 2016.

    Bone China White is only available on the Moonstone. Black and beige have a semi-gloss black console.

    All I could see to build was packages 2, 3 and 3 Touring. No mention of 4 and 4 Touring. Also only color available was Blizzard Pearl with black Softex interior. Are the 4s not available yet?

    The 4 only comes in blue or seaglass - the red and silver are extra. No black or grey in the 4 is absurd.

    Try putting in a different a zip code from a different state. The web site will only build configurations that are currently available in your area. I built a 4 yesterday. If you wish you could try Denver, CO 80204. The site shows 4 and 4 Touring available.
    As stated above, try a different zip code. I see the 4 and 4 Touring available in Grey and the 4 in black.

    Not that I've heard of. Debate on here suggests potentially minor adjustments to trim, or the swapping in/out of features.

    I believe I have seen 1 or 2. It was just very recently that 2018 was an option for the user profile here.o_O:confused:(n)

    The appearance is the same as 2016 - but I notice that Sat Navigation is now on Aussie base models.
