There is not going to be a bumper on the front side of the car and the model will have its trademark curved shape and look to its front end. Also, the model is going to have different dimensions as they are planning to make the 2017 version a longer one and are adding a few extra inches in its length. In order to accommodate the dimension change, some 20-inch wheels have been added as well.
