However, there are the latest components like the cube-themed LED DRLs and reflector lights integrated into the sleek headlamp housing, the headlights are connected by a horizontal blacked-out glass panel, and there is a silver texture on the bumper with a silver skid plate don below to accentuate the SUV-ish characteristics. The sides host 19-inch alloy wheels which a dual-tone pattern, large wheel arches with black cladding along with plastic black side skirtings. The rear section has rectangular LED taillights with a glass panel in between to make it look appropriate for our era.
