At the front of the SUV is a typical Citroen grille that merges into the distinctive LED daytime running lights. At the rear is a 3D effect taillight cluster and a chrome finished exhaust pipe. The eye-catching red outside rear view mirror coordinated with a stripe along the wheelbase is hard to miss.
