To go for a walk

LED headlights are standard on the SX and SXL trims, and at the rear, the rear combination lights – with new graphics – complement the redesigned chrome trim of the tailgate. The new 17, 18 and 19 inch wheels vary depending on the finish.
Access is easy with the power sliding doors, and once inside there are plenty of tech features. Note: the rear seat entertainment system available for long journeys. This option provides dual 10.1-inch touchscreens located in the rear of the front seats compared to the single overhead screen of previous models. The system also allows Internet access through the user’s compatible smartphone.
For weekend parties and camping adventures, an available USB port can be added to the luggage area; it is also accessible to passengers in the third row. Premium!
