The automatic LED headlamps are also functionally relevant, as they provide enhanced illumination. A total of 184 LEDs beads work together to provide a low beam angle of more than 45°. High beam illumination is rated at 178 meters. Talking about colour options, users can choose from a total of five shades. It includes Cloud Sea White, Cloud Grey, Aurora Green, Azure Blue and Deep Space Black.

Other key highlights include a rugged bumper, squared wheel arches, thick body cladding and blacked-out pillars.
