The front is bold and proud, with a sturdy looking but smaller gloss black grille. The Toyota logo sits on the middle of a chrome trim bar which extends to the LED cluster day time running headlamps. Underneath the front grille is a lower grille which has been stretched out making the fog lamps sit on the extreme ends of the front bumper. Due to this redesigning, the front looks more extended and wider, smart designing Toyota! The sides have new rocker garnishes which also incorporate 17-inch, machine-faced alloy wheels (standard) or 18 and 19 inch (optional) wheels. Out back, the same stretched out design is followed and cluster of LEDs on the tail lamps give the whole sedan a high-tech light signature.
