Among the sticker-fattening options are an extra-large "panorama" sunroof, an entertainment system with dual screens in the back of the front headrests, swiveling bi-xenon headlights, a power liftgate, keyless ignition, and nineteen- or twenty-inch wheels, the latter part of an AMG appearance package.
