Sporty flavour for RunX

These two newcomers replace the 140RS and 160RS models respectively.

The new Sport package adds both exterior and interior styling variations together with enhanced specification to the RS package that it replaces.

Added to the exterior treatment for the Sport derivatives are a rear tailgate spoiler (as fitted to the RunX RX and RSi models), 16 inch alloy wheels of the same design as those of the RSi, side protection mouldings and door handles in body colour, and "Sport" badges.

Interior enhancements include full leather trim in dark grey with red stitching and red panel inserts.

Features of the special edition RunX Sport:

  • The centre rear seat backrest features a "Sport" logo in red
  • Black overlay carpets have red and black binding.
  • Leather seat facings and headrest trim with leather door trim panels.
  • Leather-covered steering wheel incorporating remote audio controls
  • Colour-coded door handles and side protection mouldings

    Other standard features on both models are ABS brakes with electronic brake force distribution (EBD), air-conditioning, front electric windows and a radio/CD combination with integrated 6-CD shuttle.
