Inside some very grippy partial leather and heated Recaro sports seats.

Electric panoramic sunroof specified as an option.

No spare wheel as the space is occupied by the sub-woofer which comes as part of the upgraded B&O audio system option.

Matrix LED headlamps also specificed as an option which, in conjunction with the automatic headlamp function, adjusts the beam pattern when on full beam to prevent dazzling oncoming drivers and drivers of vehicles in front.

The nifty door edge protectors were also a selected option which automatically deploy on each door when opened to prevent damage.
