Likely to be offered as top-spec model, the vehicle will continue to get cruise control, ‘Vento’ floor mats, ‘Vento’ Scuff Plates, detachable window blinds, electrically foldable mirrors and a Blaupunkt touch-screen multimedia system with navigation. The variant also gets a carbon fibre finished centre console.
