The SUV had the “body-on-frame” design. 10 rubber mounts effectively absorbing rockings and vibrations during driving, were used for fixing the car body to the load-carrying part. Special crumpling zones and lowered frame partly absorbed the impact energy during a collision, thus, guaranteeing the car occupants safety.

Average fuel consumption per 100 km was 10.8 litres in extra-urban cycle, 19.9 litres in urban cycle and 14.4 litres in combined.
The brand’s AWD system, 4MATIC, split the torque between the front, centre and rear differentials in real time, thus ensuring great off-road performance of the vehicle. The electronic stability control system improved the car’s road-holding ability in any road conditions.
