Spy Shots showing a facelift for the Honda Jade in China. It will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and launch on the Chinese car market at year’s end. The facelift includes a new grille, new bumpers, new alloys, and, we noticed, new door handles.
This is the current Honda Jade, launched in 2013. It is a sporty MPV that was originally developed only for the Chinese market but it is now manufactured in Japan as well. Price starts at 149.800 yuan and ends at 183.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.8 with 141hp mated to a five-speed automatic or a CVT, no manual available.
The 1.8 will continue in the facelifted car and will get company from a new 1.5 turbo with 156hp mated to a six-speed DCT. The 1.5 turbo will be positioned above the 1.8. Price is expected to range from around 170.000 to 200.000 yuan.
The rear end of the 1.5 turbo version, with an all new bumper with two shiny pipe tips.
The rear has never been the best side of the Current Jade, looking ugly with the exposed muffler under the bumper. Good thing Honda fixed that!
