The Japanese automaker has also lowered the centre of gravity alongside better weight distribution and an improved suspension structure. Design-wise, it carries forward the boxy silhouette while flaunting the chrome finished radiator grille and tri-beam LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs.

As for side profile, it comes with squared wheel arches which are flanked by 19-inch alloy wheels as standard and 20-inch alloy wheels as an option.
