The Fronx shares a few styling bits like the split LED headlights and upright nose with the bigger Grand Vitara SUV. The bumpers are chunkier and look more rugged with faux aluminium skid plates and chrome detailing. Moving to the side, the crossover provides a sloping roofline, flared wheel arches, roof rails, and 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. Towards the rear, it features a high-set bootlid, LED tail lights connected by a full-width lightbar, and an integrated spoiler. 

There are seven exterior colours available on the new vehicle that include Opulent Red, Bluish Black, Grandeur Gray, Arctic White, Celestial Blue, Earthern Brown, and Splendid Silver. Plus a prospective customer can choose between three dual-tone options consisting of Opulent Red, Splendid Silver, and Earthern Brown colours.
