Odd grille question?

Guys just picked up a 2016 50i and the front driver and passenger bottom grille covers are different one is open other is closed. It was a demo training vehicle thoughts?

It is intentional. You can purchase an open grille and swap it out yourself.
I recently did that and it improves the looks much more especially since I am a stickler for symmetry.

I anticipate a negligible decrease in MPG which is not really a concern of mine but it will create a slight bit of drag with air flowing into that pocket versus being directed around the vehicle.

I am a stickler for symmetry so I purchased a matching grill.
