Power windows buttons carried on the panel, which is located between the front seats, in the same place are the controls for heated seats. Established a more safety chetyrehspitsevoy steering wheel.
Restyled cars also equipped with a modern built-in heating and air conditioning system of one of the leading German manufacturers of climate control systems from SANDEN. The new air conditioner remote controls electric drives of the ventilation and heating dampers, unlike the previous version with mechanical drives (cables).
