Thanks to CarNewsChina, we now have our first look at the soon-to-be-introduced Honda Jade facelift. The MPV, which is based on the Stream platform, was first introduced in China in 2013, where it is manufactured by Dongfeng Honda.

The facelift includes a new bumper at the front, new fog lamp enclosures, along with a new grille, with the latter featuring a chrome element linking the headlamps. Elsewhere, the fog lamps now have rectangular chrome surround, rather than the trapezoidal one on the current model, and the door handles are body-coloured instead of chrome.

As for the rear, the Jade gets a new bumper, which accommodates two exhaust outlets with chrome surrounds. New alloy wheels round up the list of exterior changes we can see here.

In China, the Jade is offered with a 1.8 litre i-VTEC engine with 139 hp and 174 Nm of torque, which will likely to remain in service. A possible addition to the powertrain line-up is a 1.5 litre turbo (148 hp/203 Nm), as seen on the Japan-spec Jade RS.
