Noise-cancelling upgrades and advanced comfort seats are welcome additions, while intuitive Driver Attention Warning and Coffee Break Alert systems aid the driver if fatigue kicks in. Further safety features include ABS, EBA, EBD, TCS, ESP, Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation and Cruise Control. A total of 6 airbags come standard across the range.
The Shine model also comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic wipers, rear parking sensors and bi-tone body colour options, in addition to a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto/Apple Carplay and automatic-dimming rear-view mirrors.
