Accompanied with the power increase, the vehicle gets equipped with a Carlsson 4-pipe sports exhaust system.

A Carlsson front spoiler and black grille inserts made of powder coated steel mark the front of the vehicle. The installed Carlsson LED daytime running lights are licensed as position lights and can be operated together with low beam. The Carlsson rear approach integrates the tailpipes of the Carlsson dynamically sounding sports exhaust system.
