The rear features a redesigned bumper and a unique taillight design alongside newly designed 16 and 17 inch wheels have been added. A dynamic light signature that emphasises its overall bold look, is provided by the standard LED front lights, with Z-shaped LED rear lamps..

More Hyundai Smart Sense safety features come as standard. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) for ‘City’, ‘Interurban’, ‘Pedestrian’ and ‘Cyclist’.
