It’s more or less the same. So, the quality of plastics, the fit and finish, the look and feel, and the operability of switches, buttons and knobs, all feel decently upmarket. There’s no change to the interior design either and the facelift carries over the same dash, centre console, steering, aircon vents, and instrumentation.
What has changed though is the multimedia screen. The new Endeavour uses Sync 3 and it employs a bigger screen. The resolution is good, the touch response is immediate, and sound quality for the system is outstanding. In terms of features, all the prerequisites are there. It gets various media inputs; there’s Apple Carplay and Android Auto; there’s in-built navigation; and it doubles up as the reversing camera screen as well.
Other features in this Titanium Plus include three-zone climate control system, semi parking assist, a panoramic sunroof, electric fold for the last row of seats, keyless entry and start, hands-free boot opening and closing, and power adjustment for both the front seats. There’s no shortage of safety kit either – there’s ABS, ESP, parking sensors at the front and back, auto headlamps and wipers, and seven airbags.
What’s more, the Endeavour’s cabin remains a quiet and comfortable one. There’s noise cancellation, courtesy smart speakers; the seats all round are large, cushy and supportive and there’s ample space. Besides that, with the powered tail gate and split and fold for the second and third rows of seats, there’s plenty of flexibility that comes as standard on the Endeavour.
What we would have liked better though is the look and feel of plastic at places. It’s on the ball almost everywhere, but the flat black plastic around the gear shifter looks tacky. Also, the start/stop button could have had a higher sense of occasion to it.
