The high beam headlights come with a Thor hammer which is the main feature that makes the car exterior stand out from other models. With Apple CarPlay and USB port available, the music is all in the user’s control. The audio system is also very good. LED headlights also come with high-pressure headlight cleaners. The diamond shaped 20-inch alloy wheels add to the athletic look of the car. It is a 7 seater car with three rows of seats. The seats can be folded for maximum cargo space.

The airbags are installed in the front of the car as well as in the window areas, making sure life is safe in case of car crashes. The intelligent system monitors the brightness of the LED headlights. It gets brighter in dark areas. When a car is detected to be coming from the opposite direction, the beam lowers to not dazzle the driver of the other car. This is done with the help of a camera that detects the other car by the presence of bright headlights from opposite direction.

There are multiple warnings for the driver’s assistance. One of these is the Lane Shift warning. The alarm beeps in the case of un-signaled shifting from a detected lane. The Driver Alert Control system memorizes your driving style. If sometimes the car system detects a change in your driving style which may have been caused due to drowsiness, the car gives an audio warning and motivates you to stop and take a rest. The Electronic Stability control prevents a car from slipping. The Rear Collision warning system is pretty clever. It warns the driver in case a vehicle is approaching from behind the car at a fast speed. If the driver is unable to shift lanes or avoid the rear collision, the system automatically tensions the safety belts and exerts full brakes to secure the life of the people inside the car.
