The cabin is well insulated against engine and road surface noise, but the bulky design of the car means that wind noise becomes more noticeable at higher speeds.

There is a little wind and road surface noise at higher speeds, but that is the norm with compact SUVs.
There is a little engine and road surface noise at higher speeds, but generally the vehicle is nicely refined.
He created this chart ranking the surface noise of various colors, with one being quietest and eight the noisiest:
The road-holding is very assured and the cabin is beautifully well insulated against any engine or road surface noise.
There is a little road surface noise at higher speeds on motorways, but it is minimal.
There is a small amount of engine and road surface noise when the car is pushed particularly hard, but otherwise the cabin remains nicely hushed against outside sounds.
For each depth frame, we firstly classify the depth pixels into several categories: measured depth, nonmeasured depth which can be further classified into shadow noise, out-of-range noise, and special surface noise. Then, for measured depth, we follow the truncated signed distance function (TSDF) [19] to integrate range points to the global voxel grid and obtain the original model which may miss the transparent object.
You can expect a little body roll if bends are taken too briskly and there is a little engine and road surface noise, but it is generally well-insulated against outside noise.
Early experiments included covering a blade with material similar to that used for wedding veils, which, despite its open structure, reduced the roughness of the underlying surface, lowering surface noise by as much as 30dB.
