Airbumps are pockets of air with a soft skin that protect the outer body of the car, perfect to stop parking dents!

Notable features include:

  • Pure and smooth surfaces in pearlescent white
  • Flowing contours
  • ‘Floating’ roof and rear quarter panels
  • Contrasting and functional detailing such as Lama grey ‘Airbumps’, textured black wheel arches and gloss black roof rack
  • A bright and airy cabin with a large panoramic sunroof
  • The dimensions of a compact hatchback (4.21 m long & 1.75 m wide)
  • An ideal balance between one-third glazed area and two-thirds wing surface
  • High ground clearance (21 cm) but with an optimised height of just 1.53 m
  • Reduced overhangs, with the wheels directly located at each corner
  • Smooth surfaces showcasing the chevrons
  • Flowing lines with a seamless progression from bonnet to wing
  • A high-tech light signature with LED daytime running lights and lamps built in to the ‘Airbumps’
  • Replacing the instrument cluster with a 7-inch screen
  • Swapping control buttons for an 8-inch touchscreen connected to all vehicle functions (air-conditioning, audio, satnav, connected services and driver aids)
  • Installing the passenger airbag on the ceiling
  • Replacing the traditional gearstick with push-button controls on the lower part of the dashboard and steering-wheel paddles
