The basic C trim level offers ESP, ABS + EDB, FTCS (traction control) and HSA (assistance for hill starts), 6 airbags, manual climate control, 16-inch alloy wheels with 215/65 tires, cruise control, tinted windows, fog lamps, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth connectivity. Meanwhile, Classy spec adds heated seats and upholstered in leather, automatic climate control and 18-inch alloy wheels with 225/55 tires. So the only feature currently available as an option is metallic paint.

Designed in Europe by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the new car offers a more contemporary look than its predecessors while also featuring a monocoque construction, another first for the marque which has traditionally utilized ladder-rack chassis architecture.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
