In addition, the SUV gets a split headlight setup with 3 LED DRLs on top and projector headlights on the lower bumper. It has a coupe-style sloping roofline.
The YTB SUV will feature a chopped windshield, roof rails, angular wheel arches, black plastic trim around the body and an integrated spoiler on the boot lid. It is likely to get newly designed 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.
