A fully adjustable heated air suspension seat and climate control are also part of the standard fitment.
It’s said to be simple and intuitive to use, with fully adjustable controls, a seven-inch touchscreen display and ergonomically placed controls. The joystick is responsive, while the proportional auxiliary flow ensures precise control.
