One of the primary standout features of the Adventure Edition is the fact that the French automaker has included one feature worth mentioning. It’s an app which is optional and is called Smartapp. Via a Bluetooth dongle, this feeds live data to your smartphone, which allows the driver to recordthe fastest time you went from 0-60kmph, and warnings are sent if you over speed and cross speed limits and other such alerts. This is available on both iOS and android.
