The appearance of the car can not be compared with anything: a menacing look of optics, a massive wide bumper, a huge grille and low thresholds.

The lower part of the bumper is decorated with an aerodynamic spoiler, on the sides it is difficult not to notice the huge air intakes, and the optics has acquired a more relief shape and curved compartments for daytime running lights.

The instrument panel includes 3 wells, andin one of them is located just two arrows with their scales. A built-in on-board computer with touch-screen control is visible in the center.

The door upholstery is made in white and gray tones and harmonizes with the general background of the interior. There are a lot of buttons for additional control, and chrome handles. Seat cover can be either dark gray or white. But in any case, the driver's and passenger seats will be executed taking into account the maximum ergonomics. By the way, the seats are equipped with a mass of various adjustments, which allows a person to set the position of the backrest for his anatomical features.
