Some individuals complained concerning the dimension of the brand new grille, a grille 40% bigger than the mannequin earlier than LCI. The thinner headlights on the perimeters solely worsen the notion of the grille.
The reality is that the grille is the primary model of design that stands out and that's what most will concentrate on. There are new particulars on the perimeters, a brand new bumper on the entrance fascia and a model new rear finish. Contained in the cabin, modifications are minimal and saved to a minimal on the brand new infotainment display. New engines are additionally out there and this can be a downside.
