Its interiors have been bestowed with lime green fabric and floor mats with duster lettering, dual tone dashboard and a MediaNAV system, which certainly adds to the customer excitement.

At present, this SUV is available with several body paint options including Amazon Green, Graphite Grey, Pearl Galaxy Black, Woodland Brown, Fiery Red, Supreme White and Moonlight Silver.

In the center, it has a neatly sculptured radiator grille with a lot of chrome treatment. Below this, the dual tone front bumper is fitted with an armour along with a pair of bright lamps that gives an aggressive look to the front.
