Engine specifications will remain the same as the current line-up, with a choice of 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol units, with power ranging from 52kW to 75kW, while the hybrid version offers 42kW. A CDI turbo-diesel variant with 40kW is also joining the line-up.

As for the facelift, there's a new, more rounded front end, new spotlights or LEDs depending on the trim level, and a new front grille featuring the brand logo, relocated from the bonnet.

At the back there's a centrally-mounted twin-exhaust outlet sitting inside a new rear bumper, and diffuser-style lower section.

The new model is set to make an official debut at the 2012 Geneva motor show in March, and is set to join the Australian line-up towards the end of this year. Full trim levels and specification details are yet to be finalised.
