A black chrome radiator grille stands out on the 2008’s distinctive front-end. Other features of note include smart-looking roof bars that provide extra load-bearing opportunities. Body-coloured elements comprise door handles and power-operated, heated and foldable door mirrors, along with a debonair rear sports spoiler. LEDs are represented by daytime running lights and striking claw-styled rear lamps, while further illumination is provided by rear fog lights.
A well-appointed cabin features an attractive Berlin Black trim.
