As is the case with every spy image, the exterior is heavily camouflaged. Still, there are clear indicators of the design language on offer. There will be a sleek LED DRL unit on the LED headlamp cluster, a redesigned front grille, a sporty front bumper, and fog lamps at the front. On the sides, there are elegant and modern alloy wheels, and roof rails and the overall silhouette remains almost identical to the existing model. An electric sunroof is visible in these images as well. At the rear, it looks like the compact SUV will get the connected LED taillamp unit. All in all, the premium quotient is bound to go up.
