All the trims in this series are well incorporated with safety aspects that give protection to the vehicle along with the occupants as well. The front wheels are fitted with disc brakes for better grip. Both the front and rear seats are integrated with head restraints which have height adjustment facility. These head restraints are designed in L shape which give much better protection especially to the neck area. An electronic immobilizer is offered to all the trims.
