The front-end sees a large grille with vertical slats, matched by a lower bumper with air-vent fitments on the sides and centre.

Accentuating the layout are chrome trimmings (grille surround, air-vents, side window surround, lower side doors).

Rear View

Elegantly stocky, it radiates a horizontal outlook, complementing the front with angularly smooth and chiselled lines.

The rear-end sees a body-coloured roof-edge spoiler, paired to a straight-cut, slightly protruding bumper. 

Accentuating the layout are chrome trimmings (grille surround, air-vents, side window surround, lower side doors).
