Between large front, lights are wide gridded grille like a flat line. However, it is not large and wide as we used to see on trucks and SUVs. Thanks to the matrix technology, taken from Audi, front lights are more than simple LED technologized lights.

The manufacturer has placed great helpers and systems to make driving and traveling more comfortable, like electrically adjustable lumbar support, two-zone climatization, eight speakers, and Ambiental lighting.
