The car combines an original design and practicality, which allows it to be considered one of the most popular options in its segment. Leaving almost the same dimensions and sporty style as the previous version, the manufacturer added more smoothness, improved noise insulation and interior trim. And the confirmation that this decision was successful is the huge number of cars sold around the world.

The weight takes a value from 1451 to 1617 kg, depending on the version of the car.
