Three exterior colours are available: White Crystal (solid), Phantom Black (pearlescent) and Matt Grey (matte finish). There are bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior features redesigned leather seats, electric driver's seat adjustment and an entertainment system that incorporates a seven-inch touch-screen, satellite-navigation and a rear parking camera.
