The nose features a low-set, wide grille that’s flanked by sharp-looking headlamps, prominent creases along the bonnet, and L-shaped cut in the front bumper. From the sides, the SUV has a coupe-like design element, with the roof tapering downwards towards the rear. Adding to the look are prominent haunches, cladding around the wheel arches and lower doors and sporty dual-tone wheels. Round the back, the images reveal a roof-mounted spoiler, along with sleek tail-lamps with LED elements.
