The overall exterior design can be said to be superb and exhibits masculinity and sportiness. Its V-shaped front effectively compliments its looks. The rear has been provided with a clean design with its spare wheel kept tucked under its body. The tail lamps at the rear are definitely eye-catchers.

Force One:
The Force One has been provided with a boxy design, which makes it look a bit outdated. However, it has a masculine stance and looks good with its chrome grille and large fog lamps. However, the difference between its wheel and wheel arches is a bit too much.  The looks are not something that is going to have a huge recall value.
