Talking about its exteriors, Honda Jazz 2018 facelift will have tweaked LED headlamps like the Honda City design while a “Solid Wing Face” grille coupled with a more vivid “H” car badge all make up its brand new fascia. In addition, a revised front bumper and compatible tweaked tail lamps are also introduced to fit the overall design.
Looking into interiors, the general theme stays unchanged with the classic black shade. The most noteworthy change is the replacement of 5-inch touchscreen infotainment with a 7-inch Digipad 2.0 version, supported by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
