The exterior styling draws heavy cues from the redi-GO concept car, which is influenced by the YUKAN design language. Compared to its precursor, the redi-GO features a more conventional C-pillar design and small steel wheels with plastic caps.

It features the familiar hexagonal grille, sleek headlamps, separate LED DRLs on the bumper, 185 mm ground clearance, while the rear-end features vertical taillamps, contoured tailgate and separate reflectors on the lower bumper.
