Bi-Xenon headlamps, along with adapting and cornering lamps, are stationed left and right from the grill. This new generation of headlights allows high visibility and also adds to the stylistic accent of the car. Dynamic Light Assist is optimally available. Integrated in the rearview mirror, the camera allows you awareness of the traffic around you and also regulates illumination of the carriage way.

Horizontal lines also dominate the bumper. This is noticeable in the fog laps that have horizontal LED strips. Designers decided not to change the classic look of the back of the car, but gave it LED rear light clusters and a VW badge in 3D format on the boot lid. The rear bumper went under design change too, color- coordination between the three-piece chrome bar and the bumper trim that is close to the road. The bottom section of the side skirts have this coordination too. 18 inch alloy wheels and narrowed LED indicators in the wing mirrors are the new modifications of the side strips.
