The Tech Pack includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and adds Amazon Alexa, a 9-inch touchscreen and leather seats with microsuede inserts. There’s also a wireless charger, three USB-C charging ports (other versions only have one USB-A port), a 12-way adjustable driver’s seat (up from eight) and a passenger seat. power-adjustable front end, a head-up display and 16-speaker ELS Studio premium audio.

Opting for the Technology Pack adds a customizable individual drive mode in addition to the other three drive mode settings. It also adds front and rear parking sensors and low-speed brake control as well as an adaptive damper system.
