In these years, the six-seater version was dropped in favour for the desired five-seater setup.
In 2007, a tyre pressure warning system was implemented into each model as well as a minor facelift. A new front end was once again added along with new taillights with darker tints. Unique trim pieces also flooded in for various models including a blacked out grille, upgraded rear brakes and remote key. In 2009, VSC came as standard and certain trim levels were dropped from the lineup. New colours were also introduced.

Reverse cameras became a standard feature as did electric folding exterior mirrors and an upgraded suspension system.
