All in all, the overall silhouette of this test mule remains mostly identical to the existing model. There might be minor tweaks to the headlight design, bumpers and a few body panels.

The price starts at Rs 14.15 lakh and goes up to Rs 20.11 lakh, ex-showroom. The updated version will command a hefty premium over these prices that could range between Rs 2 lakh to Rs 3 lakh.
