Sorry, your vehicle is really new and I can not locate a diagram for you. I do have a description of location though. From underneath the car on the passengers side near the front there should be 2 bolts with 10 mm heads on a plastic panel about 5 inches square. Remove those bolts and you will see a shiny metal disc about 2 inches in diameter with a 3/8 inch square hole. Removing this plug will drain the filter, then using a large oil filter wrench you remove the cartridge cover. Inside is the oil filter. It is a cartridge only, the cover is reused. It is not like a twist on filter normally used.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using 2CarPros. Com !
