The face wears the sculpted bonnet with a thick chrome grille upfront flanked by slim looking LED headlamps and daytime running lights. Moving to the side, you’ll notice the stylish looking 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels and the slopping roofline that almost gives it a fastback like profile. The rear gets boomerang shaped taillamps with C- shaped LED elements. It also gets faux air vents in the rear bumper and a bootlid lip spoiler as well.
