There whole lot of things to be discovered inside, so let’s jump inside the cabin. Start the car with automatic Start button and now guys and gals get yourself rolling on the Sporty front seats having the Sensatec Beige/Black upholstery. The seat adjustment is electrical coupled with memory to remember your previous settings, thus saving your time and effort. Depending upon the version you choose there are either wood or aluminium finish interiors. Don’t worry if the Hottness quotient of the car is overwhelming you just cool yourself with the dual zone automatic air conditioning. The steering wheel has leather finish and has multi controls on it. There’s also a panoramic glass roof on top.
