When it comes to the interior department, PremierRio Diesel DX doesn’t let you down. With its large luggage room and double folding rear seats, it makes up a lot of space to carry things in it. Adjustable head restraints and cup holders for both front and rear are very convenient to use. The front and back seat pockets are a good addition to carry keys, change or other small things. While the floor matting is not done in this model but still it can resist a lot of damage. Vanity mirror has been used along with day-night rearview mirror to avoid any restraint to our eyes. This 4 door can carry around five persons very easily without any problems. Also the trunk capacity is quite big with 454 liters of volume and it increases to up to 1158 liters when rear seats are folded. Fabric upholstery has been done extensively.

Almost all of the SUV’s now support the ABS (Anti braking system) along with EBD (Electronic brake force distribution) and PremierRio Diesel DX too has this safety feature. Seat belts are available for all passengers of the car. Brake assist, child lock feature, and high mounted stop lamp, keyless entry are some of the active and passive safety features. Both front as well as rear lamps are fog lamps.
