The transmission duties will be performed by an eight-speed automatic gearbox and offered with all-wheel drive feature. It will run on the new 17-inch gloss black alloy wheels.
Inside the cabin, it will be equipped with the new infotainment system that supports connectivity with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Along with this, it will continue the features like a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls, dual-zone climate control, a nine-speaker Alpine audio system.
