At a glance we can observe the new front and rear revised optical blocks with LED lights while several new 17 and 18 inch alloy rims will be available. The Germans announced two more color options (Vermilion Red and Marrakesh Brown) to be available for the facelifted versions. A new front bumper is available too outside together with an integrated front splitter able to improve the drag coefficient, thus, to slightly improve the model’s performance.
