Its interior could draw from both the Exalt Concept’s and 5008 SUV’s cabins and feature a comparable little guiding wheel, high-mounted instruments and a smart row of toggle switches on the centre console. Regrettably, the Exalt’s walnut dashboard and uncommon square wheel aren’t expected to feature in the ended up 508.
