You may be right thought, it could just be the photographs and it'll look better in person.
It looks like they wanted to force those corporate Chrysler Group LED headlights into the front fascia which necessitated a slimmer housing. They did an interesting job working around the new shape imo, although that central trim piece looks better in contrasting colors (a la SRT8 treatment).

The rear looks a notch better, since the current version features ungainly taillight and chrome detailing (the updated taillights even have a hint of VAG elements to them), and the interior looks massively upgraded.
