The tech savvy modern generation would love its smart access card with remote start stop; the plush dashboard and fake carbon fibre panels and a Bluetooth enabled 8-speaker bose entertainment system with plug and play ability. From the moment you ride on to the king-size high swung driver’s seat and get hold of well maneuverable steering wheel, you can experience its brilliance in every turn.
