The emphasis on horizontal lines in the concave area at the lower end of the tailgate contributes to a cleaner rear appearance. New flush-fitting free-form exhaust trim is now larger and sportier to convey more presence.

Optionally available are 19-inch BMW aerodynamic Jet Black Bicolor Style 842 wheels.
