The positive and negative booster cable locations are clearly marked.
The procedure is detailed in your owners manual.

This is not abnormal for new cars to have the battery hidden.
My 10 year old Mazda has it in the trunk.

Regular cables. Pull the red plastic cover off for jumping - it helps prevent accidental shorts.
If you get an aftermarket air intake, you can see the battery.
