The interior space is quite generous for a roadster of such diminutive size.
The infotainment system comprises of a 7-inch screen, DVD payer, dual USB ports and Bluetooth.
One major advantage of this roadster is the folding hardtop which can protect from the elements if you are not too keen on connecting with the outdoors. But if you feel adventurous and want to enjoy the bliss of the open air the folding hardtop will stow in just 20 seconds even at 25 mph. The hardtop has excellent water and soundproofing capability to give you all the benefits of a permanently fixed hard top.

By simply pushing a button, you can modify the panoramic sunroof to ‘Shade’ from ‘Open Sky’ mode within a few seconds.

The steering is highly responsive so that you can accurately execute tight curves round bends at blistering speeds.
The Dynamic Handling Package increases directional stability, driving comfort and greatly increases the agility of the compact car. This technology automatically modifies steering and rear differential and adjusts the suspension and damping force on each tire to intelligently provide the best handling characteristics according to the driving scenario. The adaptive dampers do a good job in alleviating shocks and jolts from coarse driving surfaces to give a smooth and comfortable ride.
The car is equipped with independent suspension to vary loads at the wheels and also has variable-ratio steering to maximize stability and control.
The roadster comes equipped with state-of-the-art safety suite that includes Neck-Pro head restraints (to reduce impact and severity of head injuries), dual roll bars, Attention Assist (sounds drowsiness warning), Active Brake Assist (automatic braking in emergencies) as well as the rearview camera. Pre-safe safety feature turns on flashing warning lights, makes seat belts tighter and shuts windows if it senses an inevitable collision.
