Additional features include Bi-xenon headlights with integrated LED DRLs, electrically operated sliding doors, leather steering wheel, gearshift lever and side panelling inserts, as well as parking sensors and a reversing camera. Interior satin-finish burr-walnut look trim elements are also included.
