In general, it can be said that the car looks sportier this time.

This may also be the reason why both cars share the quite same bodyline.
Based on the concept, the new details of the car exterior will be located in new lamps at the front and rear part, new bumper, and less chrome accents at the front look. With the new platform used, it seems the roof and hood of the car will receive some changes in look or size too.
