The car has in it every feature that youth demands, advanced technology, power, luxury, and of course the most important one style. The class, trendy and the elegant look of the car make it a real temptation for the speed lovers.

The top half of the dash in black plastic while the bottom half in the beige color perfectly merges with the door pad design. The car under its hood has a 1.2 L 3-cylinder petrol engine which is very much fuel efficient and generates a decent amount of power and torque . As it is a comfort line variant so it lags some of the advanced features but still has in it the standard features that one could expect from a luxurious hatchback.

The headlamp cluster of this model is attached to the upper grille in a very typical manner making it look catchy. The body colored door handles and the Rear View Mirrors make it look a bit sporty.
