This includes an integrated trailer brake controller and offers a towing capacity of 3,500kg. There is also a Tow/Haul driving mode.

For the interior, elements such as rubber mats will be offered. At the mechanical level, two options are offered. The access model is equipped with a 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel.
