The new Aito M5 has added two new exterior body colors, namely, Metropolis Red and Tahiti Gray. In terms of appearance, the trapezoidal front grille has been canceled for the EREV models and is replaced with the same closed design as the EV model. Otherwise, the other exterior aspects remain the same.

That brings the total colors to five, including Ceramic White, Azure Blue, and Gilt Black.
