Other notable add-ons include ambient lighting, 17-inch "Aberdeen" alloy wheels, full park distance control, dynamic light assist, 10.25-inch digital cockpit pro, an active info display as well as an eight-inch Composition Media infotainment system. 

The flagship Taigo R-Line stands out from its lesser siblings with R-Line front and rear bumpers with high-gloss black inserts. Adding to this model's sporty appearance is a black headliner, stainless steel pedals, privacy glass for rear and side windows, an active info display as well as a set of 17-inch "Valencia" alloy wheels. Customers can also fit the optional Black Style Package that applies a high-gloss black finish to exterior bits such as the mirror caps, radiator grille and tailpipe trim, plus black 18-inch "Misano" alloy wheels.
