On the cosmetics, the exterior tries to get a sleek look going with a chiseled front. The countered wheel arches and the elongated lamp assemblies add to the refreshed front fascia. The rear bumper seems low profile and there are combination rear lamps. On the inside, some stitching and wood grain inserts stand out. The cabin makes use on touch-sensitive buttons and focuses on ergonomic placement of the console and instruments. Seven exterior colors are available
