The shape of the wheel rim of the vehicle is also very distinctive, which is officially called the “energy-gathering rim”, which incorporates a luminous design. On the front and rear wheel eyebrows, light sets are placed. The new car also uses a wide shoulder design at the rear, which has a thicker visual effect, and the bottom is also embellished with chrome trim.

Both the front and rear of the car use horizontal light strips. The recognition is quite high, and the headlights and taillights have good shapes and functions.
