Bluetooth® radio/navigation system.

Equipped with a 17.4 cm colour display as well as Bluetooth® and convenience features, the system leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to support for the driver and entertainment.

The air-suspended seat can be adjusted to meet the individual occupant's requirements and provides the best ergonomic basis as well as a great deal of comfort. The integrated seat heating contributes to this comfort. The comfort suspension seat is equipped with pneumatic height adjustment, seat cushion angle and depth adjustment and an integrated headrest with an integrated, height-adjustable 3-point automatic seat belt.

The optionally available air-suspended, ventilated driver's suspension seat provides pleasant seating conditions and a high level of comfort. The integral armrests and the seat heating also contribute to this. The active ventilation system in the backrest and cushion of the climatised suspension seat reduces heat and moisture build-up. The numerous individual adjustment options make for optimal ergonomics.
