Between tachometer and speedometer now a colored 4.2-inch tft display is located, in which, among other things, the current inclination angle of the vehicle let. The round instruments are as renovated as the shift lever. The chassis was carried out – both in the standard export and in combination with the electronically controlled chassis control kinetic dynamic suspension system (kdss) – and should now offer better rolling and travel comfort.
