The top-spec trim is now available in the dual-tone theme. Both black and grey options are available for the buyers. The XMA and XTA variants come running on 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, while the 16-inch wheels are available for manual variants of the car. The wheels are painted in charcoal grey colour.
Speaking about the features, the new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system replaces the old smaller 5.0-inch screen. This infotainment system has an 800×480 resolution, Android Auto compatibility and it is coupled with a 10-speaker JBL audio system.
Mechanically, the SUV remains unchanged. The engine is a 2.2-litre Varicor 400 diesel unit, the same used in Tata Safari Storme.
