The front part turned out to be massive, has a large falshradiatorny grating, which is edged with chrome.

As previously noted, it is assumed that this is the final version of the designof the new crossover. It turned out to be very interesting and modern, as wellas competitive.

In comparisonwith its predecessor, the salon was completely redesigned. At the same time,designers and engineers decided not to follow the general canons, but to createsomething really new. The result is the following interior:

Immediately strikes the central part of the console, as it is very unusual. Anexample is that the control joystick of some functions is angled and recessedinto a panel with multiple keys. Due to this, the feeling of floating of thiselement is created.
Quite a lot of functions carry with it a multimedia system display. The screenitself is touch-sensitive, but if desired, you can control the basic functions witha mechanical joystick.
A very unusual solution is that the climate control unit is located high. Italso has a small analog display for displaying the parameters to be set.
A lot of attention was paid to the key, which is responsible for connecting theall-wheel drive. It is allocated almost in the same way as a multifunctionjoystick.
The instrument panel is represented by several indicators, analogue scales, andalso a color display capable of displaying very complex graphics. Note that thedesigners have tried to make the display as a background, that is, it does nothighlight much. Today this method of design of the instrument panel is used byleading automakers.
The steering wheel is multi-functional, has a fairly large number of keys andscroll wheels, switches in the form of a toggle switch.
The tunnel, which separates the front seats, was taken for a fairly large box.In addition, the armrest is also made in the form of a box.

The back row was almost not paid attention. Of the comfort, it can be notedonly that the unit has been withdrawn with deflectors for climate control toensure a more efficient air supply.

In addition, in the top version of the cabin crossover should be skinned withNappa leather, use natural veneer, aluminum and soft plastic with a pleasanttexture when finished. Therefore, we can say that the salon corresponds to avery high class.


To begin with, wenote that the car will be delivered with a full or only front-wheel drive.Therefore, attention should be paid to this point. To the specifics oftechnical characteristics we will refer the following moments:

While it is known that a gasoline engine with a turbine will be installed.
According to the automaker, a new 10-speed automatic box will be installed onthe crossover, which will reduce fuel consumption by dividing the torque.
The brand-new all-wheel drive system will be installed with a differential thathas been substantially redesigned. Due to its modification on the chassis, 150%of the torque will be transmitted more than the previous version of the car.
