With a length of 4380mm and width of 2025mm, the vehicle is very spacious and comfortable with ample leg space. The 300- litre cargo volume, however may seem a little too compromised but looking from a more practical perspective, it is usually enough for a 2-seater car.

Everything from side / front / driver airbags, anti- theft alarm, rear parking sensors and brake assistance to vehicle stability control system, tyre pressure monitor, front and side impact beams and traction control, there is just about everything to keep speed enthusiasts safe in the Indian roads.
