The SUV also flaunts newly designed dual-tone alloy wheels and an advanced interior with dual 10.25-inch screens – one for the fully digital instrument console and the other for the infotainment system. Notably, it replaces the traditional gear lever with a rotary dial for added modernity and convenience.
