While the rest of the vehicle's styling might seem evolutionary, the new model's most distinctive styling change is its nose which now features more swept-back headlights which are now positioned higher than the bolder looking "Tiger nose" grille. Inisde it features a sportier looking more driver oriented dashbaord.
