The front grille is very deep, and the edges are rounded and smooth. The other models in the range above the LS-M have more tweaks and accents to add to the exterior appearance, but this one does come with 17-inch alloy wheels, and sizeable pipe-like tubes across the back of the cab.
The shiny hard cover on the ute tray opens easily, with one solid slab that lifts up, and the rear gate is very high and deep, it really slams down when you open it.
Inside the appearance is full of contradictions. Some of the dash looks basic and clunky, yet the media screen and digital instrument display look shiny and modern. Yet, the steering wheel is functional rather than luxurious, and the base model cloth seats feel very no-frills.
