The Maxximo Plus facelift features a wider grille which seamlessly integrates with the new headlamps. The test mule has pre-production circular headlamps but the shape of the housing is pretty apparent. The bumper also undergoes a revision and the foglamps are now mounted higher than before. The rest of the exterior is untouched while the interior is expected to have a few minor tweaks.
