On the front we could easily notice the completely reworked and updated grille with LED headlights and LED daytime and support lights around the main bulbs. Headlights are somehow smaller and subtle and in the same time sport like.
Fog lights are now melted into the front guard and give the vehicle a better look. Taillights are now LED too, and there is no much else to say about the back. It is a square look, not much better than the last year version.
