The new hybrid SUV, which will sell for Rs 19,000 more than the ICE-powered model’s top variant, comes with bigger wheels, an updated instrument cluster, bigger boot space, and better performance and mileage, among others.

And on the rear, the new SUV gets LED rear combination lights. The vehicle stands on 18-inch aluminium wheels.

Inside, the SUV comes with a three-spoke steering wheel with mounted control buttons and leather-upholstered seats featuring an eight-way adjustable driver seat, six-way adjustable co-driver seat, and 60:40 rear seats.
