What’s most noticeable in the upcoming facelift is the revamped front part that include a cascading grille alongside with triangular shaped four projector LED headlights and LED DRL surrounds. This should provide more and improved lighting compared to the current model. It can also be seen that there’s an additional integrated LED DRL strip on top.

Another new thing to be seen is a change in the enclosure of both the bumper and fog lamp, which now comes in triangular forms, which gives a three dimensional, sporty look. The taillights on the other hand, are also being redesigned with slimmer dual-LED inserts giving it a more vibrant appeal, and the boot lid as well, having the plate card moved to the rear bumper.
