A biometric fingerprint sensor and a face recognition camera make sure you're the driver. The interior trim uses leather of different colors, aluminum and carbon fiber. The front console has a widescreen display, from which you can control the basic functions of the car. Using the built-in assistant with voice control, Essentia can recommend a route, connect to smart home systems, as well as smartphones and other devices.
