The only diff I can think of is the 2017 had some minor revisions to the infotainment system, and included the on-screen guages, which you can't get on the 2016s. Not really a deal breaker by any means though.
Depends on what your plans are with the car. If you're planning on doing a diff + BBK it negates the reason to spend extra on the PP (unless you really need 310mm rear brakes). If you're not planning on doing those, the PP would be the better buy.Yes, I am aware. He would have to move up in trim level. Personally, I wouldn't buy one without the PP, unless money for a wavetrac was in the mix. Its easier to just get a PP equipped car.
Came to post this.MY2017 is when they start cost cutting for NAR.
Mine has all that, save for the light ring on the cigarette lighter?? Thanks, now I want it.Came to post this.
Might not have the light ring on the cigarette lighter, felt lined & cooled glovebox, underseat drawer, among other things
Not sure when in 2017 they stopped including some of that, but some 17's have them and some don't.
