The comfortable recliners, a small wheel of a truncated Golf GTI and old school stopwatch dials and boost pressure sensor with oil temperature on the front panel are hitting on the same strings – to bring the entourage drayvovy atmosphere.
But practicality is not necessary to write off.

Two full seat with an excellent profile and integrated headrests negate the idea of ​​”segregation” rear passengers.
A 312-liter boot, expandable to 1006 liters of useful not to bury the idea of ​​their use in everyday life.
