Honda Jazz 2018- Exterior Design Review
The exterior design of the new Jazz looks exactly similar to the older model.
There are no big changes done. We were expecting Honda to introduce a new grille design, new bumpers and also a set of new alloy wheels.
But it seems that the Indian market is not going to get any of the updates the Euro Spec car gets.
One of the major reason cited for this is that with the new bumper design, the car would have exceeded the 4-meter mark.
The only new bits added to the exterior of the car are new tail-lamps (only on the range-topping models), chrome door handles and two new exterior paint schemes.
