The car comes in a dual-tone Bright White and Surf Blue color.
Interiors: The vehicle has a heater to warm the cabin
The Jeep Magneto has a cabin with two Royal Blue and Black leather seats with blue-colored inserts, an electric heater to keep the cabin warm, and a multifunctional power steering wheel.
