Speaking of the facelifted Honda HR-V, changes on the exterior are subtle. The brand’s latest corporate face at the front fascia includes a new grille with a thicker chrome bar seen on the new Accord and Civic, alongside revised LED headlamps with high beam and indicators. A more aggressive look is manifested by lower air intakes. Plus, LED fog lamps will be served as optional feature.
