The new model features a host of cosmetic and equipment updates on the previous model and the prices start at Rs 4.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai) for the petrol model and Rs 5.39  lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai) for the diesel.

Exterior updates include a sharper design with a new grille at the front with vertical slats, faux silver skid plates at the front and the rear, new 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, squared out wheel arches with plastic cladding all around and new head lamps and tail lamps with more detailing.
