The Honda Jazz has finally gotten the RS treatment, adding more stylish looks and a sportier body kit to one of the best-selling vehicles in its segment.

Just how different is the RS, or 'Road Sailing', variant from the regular Jazz? Well, for starters the front end looks a hell of a lot sleeker thanks to new LED daytime running lights, and a more menacing fascia with faux carbon fiber trim. Meanwhile, a cool RS-style spoiler and a nice bit of chrome is found at the rear. Down low the RS runs on gloss black 16-inch alloys, along with new side skirts too.

Having trouble picturing it? Well, we brought the pre-refresh base variant along for our shoot to give you guys a better idea. Looking at both units side by side in the metal, the improved aesthetics are very apparent. You'd even mistake the car for a proper hot hatch if you aren't familiar with what it's packing—or not packing—underneath the hood.

At over a million pesos, do the added looks warrant the price increase over the regular variant? Watch the short comparison video above and judge for yourself.
