Headlamps and tail lights feature the new pixelated design with U-shaped DRLs at the front. The 20-inch alloy shows a unique design, showcasing Hyundai's new ‘Parametric Dynamics’ design that was first seen on the Tucson. Inside, the floor is flat and the long-wheelbase offers a grand interior. The dual-cockpit design features a customisable 12-inch, infotainment screen and a 12-inch instrument cluster.
Features include Bose sound system with eight speakers, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, app connectivity, wireless charging pad, head-up display, five USB ports, heated steering wheel and heated front seats. Safety features include- Driving assist, cruise control, lane changing assist, blind-spot warning, driver attention warning, forward collision assist and more.
