Unpainted elements of the bumper and sills hint at practicality and versatility.

The crossover is also more capacious than a hatch - the volume of its luggage compartment is 360 liters, but by folding the back of the back sofa (in the ratio 60:40), the size of the compartment can be increased to 1194 liters. In addition to the main cargo compartment, the crossover is equipped with a large number of niches and drawers that provide another 24 liters of storage space.
