This new offering was recently seen at the Beijing Auto Show of 2014. The production version will be displayed at the Detroit Auto Show.

The boxy looks of the vehicle have been dropped in favor of a sleeker and leaner body. The exteriors are also punctuated with a few very elegant features.
On the inside, the cabin will have more or less the same features and characteristics as the cabin in the earlier model. However, the carmaker will introduce a number of new features, which will complement the existing standard features. The interiors are designed to offer stiff competition to other models in this category. The interiors are also equipped with many new technological features. The best quality leather has been used to upholster the seats. In fact, a lot of high quality leather has been used within the cabin and this only helps to expand the comfort levels within the cabin.
