The XE variant also lost its chrome garnished Hexa branding on D pillar, and dome wheel nuts were replaced with normal nuts. The spare stylized 16″ wheel rim was replaced with a xenon standard wheel rim.

June is when the chop chop began. The XE variant lost 2 tweeters in the front, its second row power socket, and the one shot power window down function. Earlier the express all windows power down switch was located on the driver side door.
Out went the window roll blinds, and door styling strip, and the black 3M tape on A,B,C pillar. This meant body coloured pillars were a standard, and the Varicor branding near driver side ORVM too was ditched.
