It also has a Sport driving mode which makes driving a rewarding and exciting experience. It has standard, easy reclining rear seats and a folding center armrest. The options include leather upholstery finish, heated front seats, rear-view camera and navigation system.

Engine / Fuel Efficiency

It is, surprisingly, very efficient in terms of fuel consumption, and can cover up to 30 miles per gallon. It has a big 3.5 L hybrid V6 engine which produces a whooping 295 horsepower at 6300 rpm. That is no mean task for this hybrid type, which apart from the attractive exterior, and luxuriant upholstery can also be super tough on off road terrains.
