While the new Alto holds the boxy design and proportions of the eighth-generation Alto Kei car (introduced in 2014), it now appears softer and more rounded. The new Alto retains the older model’s trapezoidal headlights, but it now includes new lighting elements.

The taillights are unchanged except that they are now mounted upright on the sides of the trunk.
