Taking into account how compact SUVs are used in the ASEAN region, the all-new compact SUV ensures a top-class ground clearance of 222 mm to enhance driver confidence even when handling rough roads. In addition, four drive modes - Normal, Wet, Gravel and Mud - can be selected according to the road condition, and the new Wet mode makes it less likely to lose control of the steering wheel and allows for worry-free driving even on roads flooded by sudden showers.

The four drive modes enable the vehicle to handle various road conditions through an integrated control of the Active Yaw Control (AYC), which improves controllability by adjusting the driving force on the front left and right wheels; traction control, which controls skidding of the tires; engine control; and power steering control.

The system adjusts not only the volume to match vehicle speed but also the sound quality itself, thereby delivering lively bass and clear mid and high tones even when driving on a rough surface.
