The central air intake opens out upwards in a V-shape, forming a visual base unit for the radiator grille. Beneath the headlamps, sections blend into the feature lines along the vehicle flanks, linking the front section with the sides.

The cocpit

The side air inlets in the bumper are now positioned low down, giving the car a more road-hugging appearance.
