Up front, the 2018 Honda Jazz is decorated by a new front fascia. To be specific, the hatchback receives the “Solid Wing Face” grille design with tapered headlights. Besides, the front bumper looks sharpers and the fog lights are also reshaped.

Alongside the exterior changes, Honda also offers customers a new variant named “Sport”. In fact, this is Europe’s version of the RS; however, it looks sportier thanks to some tweaks such as a new aero splitter at the front bumper as well as a diffuser at the rear combined with outstanding red pinstriping. Notably, the new trim features a new set of 16-inch sleek black alloy wheels.
