    • Wireless Smartphone Charger: The charging pad helps charge a compatible mobile phone wirelessly. 
    • Electric Sunroof: Telluride is available with multiple sunroof options, but in one of its variants, it gets just one electric sunroof. The Seltos is also available with a similar electric sunroof in India. 

    Safety:

    • Blind View Monitor (BVM): The Blind View Monitor (BVM) presents the driver with a live video of the car’s blind spot inside the instrument cluster from the mirror-mounted camera, when the turn signal is activated.
    • High Line Tyre Pressure Monitor: Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) offers the convenience and an added measure of preventative safety by constantly monitoring tire inflation pressures in all four tires. A warning light appears in the instrument cluster should any tire pressures drop below a specified range.
    • HAC (Hill-start Assist Control): Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) offers an added measure of security when moving from a stop on a steep hill by preventing the vehicle from rolling backward. It functions by gently applying the brakes for two seconds while you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator.
