Tweaks to the four-door’s form include a more upright grille, chromed headlamp bezels, bolder lower air intake and new rear bumper with black valance and bright taillamp bezels, revised suspension springs, anti-roll bars and dampers, revised Servotronic power steering, a retuned exhaust system, plus additional acoustic glazing, tri-laminate body undertrays and wheel-arch liners to further reduce noise intrusion into the cabin. The stability control now has a selectable ‘sport traction’ mode for later intervention and carbon-ceramic brake discs are optional with 20″ wheels.
New features available include radar-based active cruise control, a 1,100-watt, 15-speaker Naim digital sound system and new 19″ Pirelli UHP tyres. There are also three new paint colours and four two-tone paint combinations to choose from, new wood and chrome trim options, and piping for the leather seat upholstery, now available in two new colours. Other new options include a full-width rear seat with fixed central seat and multi-adjustable outer seats, an iPod/MP3/USB interface and park distance control with new screen graphics.
