While the Honda FIT eHEV received a facelift late last year, the rest of the range has had to wait until now to get a host of revisions that encompass aesthetic and practical.

Styling has become a little sportier with revised bumpers that complement the shape of car and applies across the board on the Comfort and Elegance and mirror what was done to the eHEV. Window frames and pillar trim now have a matte black finish and the headlight projector ring surround is now finished in black.
