The updates on the new Exora revolve mainly around cosmetics actually – featuring new wheels, new Ruby Red paint, LED DRLs, and blacked out components like the roof, side-mirrors, front grille, and rear spoiler which are only in the Executive Plus variant.
Inside, the MPV now comes with a new steering wheel similar to the Preve, a new centre-strip, and a USB port on the floor console.
Executive Plus adds electric folding door mirrors, side door moulding, leather seat covering, 9-inch rear entertainment system with DVD player and SD card slot, cruise control and electronic stability control.
