Outline of all-new Fronx
The all-new Fronx is a new-genre SUV with a coupe style that’s strong and fluid and an easy-to-drive compact body. The bold and thick front grille and the front and rear styling that emphasizes expansion towards the sides express powerfulness and strong presence of an SUV. The dynamic coupe style that slopes towards the rear emphasizes a flowing and stretchy proportion. In addition to the high-quality interior which makes efficient use of space, it has adopted advanced equipment such as 360 view camera, headup display, wireless charger and rear-seat air conditioning vents, for convenience and comfort.
