The highlight of the front part of the SUV is the grille section sporting a thick chrome strip. The design of the grille section is inspired from the iV-4 SUV concept model previewed at the 65th Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013. The grille is flanked by projector head lamps unit that also features DRLs inside the cluster. The turn indicators are not a part of the head lamp unit and are positioned on either sides of the front bumper above the round fog lamps.
