Featuring 4,133mm (162.7 in) length, it’s just slightly longer than a CrossPolo, with a long wheelbase of 2,565mm, resulting in short body overhangs for nice sporty proportions.

The front part features a wide radiator grille and narrow headlights, the LED daytime is combined with delicate arcs of light under the LED headlights and there are large LED rings around the foglights.
