With a sportier suspension tune than even the Turbo R-Spec model, the Rally Edition aims to up the ante for those wanting more out of their hatch. With the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine from the Turbo, the Rally Edition rates 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque on regular gasoline.

Upgrades specific to the Rally Edition include the sportier spring, damper, and stabilizer bar settings; RAYS lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels which save 5 pounds per corner; a B&M Racing Sport shifter; carbon fiber-look aerodynamic add-ons; exclusive matte blue paint; and “Rally Edition” badging and floor mats.

In addition, the Rally Edition is only available in six-speed manual form—a nod to its performance intent.
