A significantly revised front apron and a dumbbell-shaped radiator grille are new. At the back, the supposed underbody protection disappears, instead of an off-road design, chrome programs now dominate. The sports equipment of the GT-Line, available in the most powerful versions with 160 and 204 hp, has also been significantly modified. Horizontal air intakes at the front and tinted exterior mirrors are key features.

Inside, a display with dynamic programming replaces the instruments of previous rounds, and a new feature is the lane departure warning system, which now also actively intervenes if the car threatens to leave its lane unintentionally. The system can be turned off with just one push of a button, which can help on narrow roads or in construction areas with detour markings.

Another button near the shift lever can be used to activate the reversing camera when driving ahead so that following traffic can be observed. An active blind spot and traffic warning should also ensure greater safety.
