The tagline of the car is ‘grab your road’. This is an ample indication of the dominating and muscular look of this car. The car is built on the same platform as the SX4, but is a much more compact and toughened version.

The XA Alpha styled oversized front bumper and the rectangular fog lamps complete the look of the front fascia. The rear is compact and neat and the twin exhaust decorated with chrome adds a nice touch. The sporty looking triangular rear lamps complete the picture. The side profile is arresting with character lines and large wheel arches.

It is a five door SUV and the rear seats can be folded down to vastly increase the area. However, the materials and design of the seats, the dashboard and the console remains a mystery.
