Equipment levels and options have been improved with the option of front massaging seats, digital interfaces including a 7-inch touchpad and a 12-inch panoramic HD screen. The touchpad controls the all the in-car functions such as dual-zone air conditioning, navigation, audio, telephone and driving aids. Where the 12-inch panoramic HD screen can be configured to display essential driving information and can show data for either the navigation system or other driving aids, such as the active cruise control.
