Then there is also the two-tone bumper with the matte black finish getting carried over all around. That includes the black wheel claddings, which along with the 15-inch Nepta finish alloy wheels does add some character to the car when viewed from the sides.

The interiors too get largely visual upgrades with the World Edition badge getting displayed on the foam steering wheel that again sports a glossy black finish.
