As to the front face, little was changed includes a more linear rectangular expanding cosmos grille, infinity loop headlights and slim LED daytime running lamps.

The lines stretching across the face coupled with the lines ended the rear part and the pedal-designed five-spoke rims help enhance the high-tech and sporty impression of the model.
