Being a mid-life facelift, changes in the new Jazz will be subtle, focusing only on cosmetics. A pronounced grille with a slightly bigger logo, re-profiled headlamps and tweaked bumper are expected at front. Side profile will be carried over without major changes barring newly designed alloy wheels. At the rear, LED tail-lamps will get a mild redesign and reworked rear bumper will come with more black elements, extending sporty appeal.
