As a model year update, the change in the appearance of the new car is not obvious, it still maintains the design style of the current model. The intake grille is more three-dimensional than the current one, and looks more refined. At the same time, the new car will be equipped with intelligent laser headlights in the later stage (not available in the early stage of the listing), the headlights will automatically monitor the situation of the incoming car and automatically control the brightness of the corresponding area of the high beam when the speed exceeds 40km/h; The laser-assisted high beam will be automatically turned on to enhance the lighting effect when the speed exceeds 75km/h.
On the side and the rear end, 2020 WEY VV6 continues the current design, but offers a new rim style with two-tone design for a sportier feel. In addition, the internal structure of the new taillight group is adjusted to look like a full LED.
