The mildly updated sedan receives a reworked front fascia which involves a black honeycomb meshing for the grille with a single chrome slat carrying the badge. The almond shaped headlamps are now stretched further back towards the fenders while the bumper remains unchanged. The interior undergoes a slight change in the color theme.
The sedan continues to be powered by the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine which comes mated to a 5-speed manual or a new 7-speed dual-dry clutch automatic transmission (expected). The motor is available in two states of tune – 120 hp and 150 hp.

The Blacktop adds a glossy black finish for the grille, foglight enclosure and secondary airdam, a black roof and wing mirror housings. The interior of the Blacktop editions sport a full black finish with contrast red stitching.
