The infotainment system has a 15.7cm large touch-screen with new audio visual navigation device. The infotainment system also supports hand-free Bluetooth connectivity which allows a user to sync his phone with it and do all the phone activities with the help of touch-screen such as dialling, answering calls and checking address book.
