The images represent a sporty crossover/MPV stance with corresponding modifications. While the overall silhouette continues to be identical to the regular version, there are quite a few sporty additions to this MPV. To begin with, the BMW-type dual C-shaped LED DRLs looks modern and exciting, the auxiliary LED light bar below the number plate is handy, the fog lamps are projector units, the front grille has been blacked out along with the background of the headlights. The sides feature graphics at the third quarter that complement the black colour well.
The rear-end is much similar to the regular version too. However, the wraparound LED taillamps extend well into the sides and the stoplights are vertically placed on the D-pillar. Another prominent design change includes sporty and massive alloy wheels that are painted black to accentuate the sporty appeal of the MPV. The low-profile tyres indicate towards the sporty driving dynamics of the car. The roof rails hold the usable luggage rack on the roof that could incorporate sports equipment like skis, small boats, bats, etc. The hint of glossy material on the boot lid looks exuberant too.
