Interior

The interior features a driver oriented environment that makes the driver feel at one with the car. It is comfortable and roomy for both the passenger and the driver. The Active Driving Display shows the vehicle's speed and other important navigation information on a panel.

The instrument cluster is a centrally positioned analog gauge with wing shaped digital displays surrounding it. There is a red ring around the central gauge that starts to pulsate when the driver opens the door. When the ignition is turned on the Active Driving Display goes into position.

The shift knob is covered with satin-chrome plating and leather so as to highlight a sporty appearance. The center console has a high quality appearance as it is finished with a metallic look contrasted against piano black. The car's interior is available in black or white leather and two types of fabrics both in black or sand.

Exterior

The exterior design is made to complement the KODO design. It has large wheels that are highlighted by flared fenders that create a strong and wide view. The wing appears to have been chiseled from solid metal so as to achieve a sculpted finish.

So as to emphasize on sleekness the headlamps are separated from the turn signals which are in turn positioned above the fog lamps.

The cabin is positioned on the rear of the body and therefore it rises dramatically toward the rear. This creates a sense of speed and agility. It comes in seven colors that highlight the emotional exterior design.
