light-alloy wheels and DSC stability control with DTC as standard. Also fitted as standard are sports seats, a sports steering wheel, and model-specific displays and controls. Options include exclusive Chili Red contrasting paintwork for the roof and exterior mirrors as well as 19-inch light-alloy wheels.
