The interior design will be also improved compared to the previous model, and we can expect a lot of changes here. Some changes are aesthetically, but most of the changes are related to the systems. First of all, we have to say that the comfort will be a little bit better compared to the previous model. Why? Because the wheelbase will be slightly stretched which further means more space inside. Also, all the seats will be of course very quality. The leather will be their standard upholstery material. They will be very supportive as well. This model also provides a leather steering wheel with a lot of buttons.
