Unlike its siblings like T-Cross and Tiguan, the Nivus has been designed with a swooping rear style. The design language clearly focuses more on contoured proportions rather than either butch or sharp philosophies. The headlights and the DRLs lend the vehicle a premium appeal while the 17-inch alloy wheels sit pretty well under the rounded arches.
