Tinted rear windows, smoked LED rear lights, a chrome radiator grille and the classy PanAmericana logo on the B-pillars stylishly guarantee a superior presence in visual terms as well.

The concept of a multi-functional yet stylish all-rounder that can also be used in gravel B-road conditions is consistently carried through to the end with multifunctional leather steering wheel, leather gearshift knob, Climatronic, entry lights with PanAmericana lettering and pedals in stainless steel look.
