The interior gets an overhaul with a completely new dash and center tunnel. The screen is now of the standing kind although it still isn’t very big.
Gear lever is smaller now and there is a trendy knob on the tunnel between the seats. Electronic parking brake is new as well, but the steering wheel remained exactly the same.
First shot of the back. The overall shape of the light didn’t change but the layout is new. No other obvious changes.
Facelifted. The shiny bits in the bumper seem much more pronounced in real life than on the official image above.
