The Chrome trapezoidal grille with five horizontal slats is the first thing that caught our eyes. The grille in piano black has a chrome border to highlight beauty. The front bumper also has been modified to distinguish it from the predecessor, along with newly designed fog lamps.   

The newly introduced paint scheme is another attraction, called Sparkling Black Crystal Shine. Diamond-cut 16-inch wheel adds to the elegance of the car.
