It also gets the same LED DRLs and LED fog lights as well. The grille is finished in gloss black with brushed silver elements. From the front, it looks exactly like the top-spec AX7L variant.

Side profile

After showing the front end, the vlogger then talks about the side profile. The first thing that she shows are the alloy wheels. This variant comes with 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. The top-spec variants come with 18-inch machined alloy wheels.

She also mentions that it gets flush-type door handles and electronically operated ORVMs. Sadly, they do not fold automatically. Next up, she adds that the company offers the AX5 Select variant with disc brakes on all four corners.

Apart from this, she mentions that it gets a reverse parking camera and two parking sensors. She adds that a car of this size should come equipped with at least four parking sensors. Overall, the car from the outside does not look any different from the more expensive AX5 trim.
