Along with new style highlights, the SUV also gets a fresh set of interior highlights which seem to be borrowed from the S-Class.

The power steering system has also been designed for rugged off-road use.

The SUV is capable of sprinting from 0-100kmph in about 4.5-seconds and is electronically restricted to a top speed of 220kmph.
