Now with the arrival of its facelift in Israel - this is also its only propulsion configuration.



The design changes are tiny to imperceptible, but more important than these are the updates in the cabin that are three important: connectivity to Apple and Android devices, turning the 12.3-inch screen into a touch screen and as a result, the possibility of getting rid of the terrible operation of the problematic touchpad.

Also added was a MARK LEVINSON audio system with 23 speakers.



The safety systems also finally align with what is customary in its sector, adaptive cruise control, cross-traffic warning in front and behind, "dead zone" vehicle warning, road sign detection, lane departure correction, automatic braking and more.
