The Bestune T99 retains the signature design elements including slim headlamps and unique raindrop front grille pattern. Like the T77, the Bestune T99 is also decorated with chrome trim strips, and vertical LED daytime running lights enclosed on either side of the front bumper.
The rear-end again perfectly synergizes with Bestune family with slim connected taillight design with vertical reflector beams. There is a pair of squarish dual-tip exhausts positioned at the bottom of blacked-out rear bumper.
The Bestune T99 will be available in three trims to choose from: Standard, Deluxe, and Sport. The differences are purely aesthetic, because the equipment remains the same. There are two 12-inch digital displays acting as a dashboard and a multimedia screen, shielded from excess light by a sun visor. The touch-enabled multimedia screen provides access to the climate control settings, seat heating and other useful functions.
Like the T77, the new Bestune T99 will also feature a holographic image projector called the D-Life. Once activated, a voice-controlled virtual assistant pops up above the dashboard and can help you change climate control settings or find your favorite tune in the library.
