The Maxximo Plus gets a new grille, headlamps and bumper.

While the previous test mule had its headlamps and grille hidden, the prototype which is spotted now has a camouflaged apron revealing the revised design to a fair extent.

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.
