Rear occupants, too, get comprehensive entertainment on distant journeys thanks to the integrated multimedia system that has two 7-inch LCD screens planted on the front seats’ headrests. There are even RCA input connectors for corresponding attachments and a couple of Bluetooth headphones for good measures, too.
