Clearly visible are the new front skirt and fog lights, the differently sculpted bumper and the new mirrors with the more elegant side flashers. Also new will be the modified layout of the headlights: while the flashers will move to the bottom of the units, LED daylight driving lamps will be fitted to the outer edges of the front lamp units. A slightly redesigned rear bumper and taillights without the coloured 'metal' stripes will complete the facelift. Engines will be left unchanged.
