Other than this, the SUV also gets a heads-up display (HUD) that gives information on the speed limits, battery voltage, and tyre pressure. There are no changes in terms of specifications.

This four-cylinder, turbocharged Diesel engine outputs a maximum power of 156 PS along with a peak torque of 400 Nm. The entry-level XE variant gets a 150 PD-320 Nm version of this motor that comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The more powerful version of this engine offers two transmission options – a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic.
