The leaked images also gave us a look at the exterior of the car. Celerio will receive a large Celerio-inspired grille. To go along with the bigger grille, the car will get bigger swept headlights. Instead of the sloping roofline, the new Alto could have a higher rear profile using a flat roofline.
