A small crossover is included in the list of the most successful creations of the German brand, and even in Russia this car is very popular and in high demand.
Initially, the company management apprehended the concept of such a mini-SUV with caution, entrusting all the main work on its development to General Motors division, but the market confirmed the viability of this car, and now the company from Rüsselsheim decided that the very moment had come to refresh the car in order to not to lose its popularity and competitiveness.

Protective panels, hiding the front area of the novelty, indicate that the compact crossover is likely to get a new impressive bumper. The new black mesh grille, tracing through the panel, perfectly combined with the headlights. As a rule, simultaneously with the front end, the rear part of the car is redrawn, but obviously, it will come to it a little later.
Judging by the stripes in the upper area of the headlamps, the novelty has received daytime running lights from LEDs. These strips will also work as turn indicators. According to reliable information, it became known that anyone who wants to replace the light source of the spotlights with LEDs will be asked to do this for an additional fee of 1,000 EUR.
