It features LED headlamps with integrated DRLs, bolder chrome garnish on the grille that runs into the headlamps, new bumper design with fog lamps, new alloy wheels and the option of Cosmic Blue metallic color sourced from the Civic. The rear-end gets new taillight graphics, a revised bumper and a spoiler. The exterior has already been revealed completely via spy shots, which can be viewed here.
