Well, and also the touchscreen of the multimedia system is now lower, although it is still stuck to the panel.
The steering wheel was also replaced, it is a two spoke. In the pictures, of course, the top end Kushaq such a crossover has a 10-inch tablet, virtual tidy and climate control. Also, the model provides six airbags, cruise control, rain and light sensors, a tire pressure monitoring system.
