An unexpected model makeover designed to stoke interest in a dying model range.
The Verada’s bumpers are larger for greater differentiation between the more mundane Magna models.
Alloy wheels were redesigned, colour-coded grilles were introduced and Series II badges were incorporated. The model range now read: Ei, 159kW/318Nm GTVi AWD and Xi.
The GTVi AWD also gained stronger brakes. There were also minor trim and equipment level alterations.
