The exterior has a borderless V-shaped grill, which is skillfully highlighted by the slim LED headlamps and DRL assembly. The low-nose and high-tail design, as well as the chrome and black trims, the hidden door handles that reveal themselves when you activate them, and the swooping diagonal angle that cuts across the passenger doors all contribute to the vehicle’s futuristic appearance. Additional details include 19-inch multi-spoke wheels, a high-level brake light with a distinctive shape, V-shaped formation tail lights, dual vertical dual exhaust pipes, and other features.
