The front design, which has become even more fearless with the introduction of V-shaped signature lights, further clarifies that it is a member of the Citroën family. The air scoop on the front side and the air bumps on the body side have accent colors. The rear LED light cluster has a design that emphasizes the three-dimensional effect with a prominent 3D effect.

High-density foam and thick construction provide posture retention and dynamic comfort performance that reduces fatigue on long drives. The rear seats have three full-size independent seats. All three seats have the same seat width, and each has a reclining function and a 150mm forward/backward sliding function, allowing you to adjust according to your preference. The upper-grade PLUG-IN HYBRID and SHINE PACK seats feature a combination of dark blue Nappa leather and black perforated leather for the central seat and backrest for a softer feel and an even higher quality.

Front seat heaters and the driver’s seat multi-lumbar support, which supports long-distance driving with eight airbags built into the seatbacks, enhance comfort. The seat of SHINE uses alcantara in the center of the backrest and Tep leather on the sides. Both seats have blue stitching with a double chevron motif. As a specification common to all grades, the black dashboard and door armrest stitching are blue. In addition, by adopting a compact shift selector and drive mode selector in the center console, the capacity of the accessory compartment has been expanded, further improving convenience. The foot pedals are finished with aluminum specifications.
