At the front, this time around, the company has given this SUV a major design overhaul. It now gets a chunky black closed-off grille, which looks like an EV design element. However, there will be big air dams on the lower section of the front bumpers for the cooling of radiators.

The main highlight of the new front end will be the LED projector headlights and C-shaped LED DRLs. These lights will have blacked-out housings, which add to the aggressive appearance of the SUV.
