In terms of features, it is almost as well equipped as the India-spec model but misses out on the bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen (gets a 9-inch unit instead), a sunroof, and wireless phone charging. That said, there are no differences in the safety kit of the two models, as both get six airbags, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and traction control.
