It's a library pic I expect, look at some of the brochure shots and you will see the model badge is blacked out as its a different model.

Your correct though, all turbo diesels had short nosed bonnets and a grille.

Also looks like the rear suspension is knackered - at least the suspension arm bearings need replacing!
