Default Light Facelift for the Honda Zest with the Spark Edition




Quote:
Honda Japan gave a little facelift to their Compact Kei Car the Zest with the Spark edition.

What’s up here? Honda redesigned the Zen’s front grill headlamp, bumper, new electric retractable side mirrors, 14” aluminum wheels, improved interior, and dedicated sport suspension on the Turbo model.

A nice little upgrade that will help Honda give new “Spark” to their cute little Zest

Default Honda Zest Spark Tuned by Mugen





Quote:
Shortly after Honda announced their Zest facelift with the Spark, Mugen sent us their press kit including their latest kit for the Japanese K-car.

Two style are available with the “AGGRESSIVE Style” package (the first in the gallery below), which includes a modified front sports grills, front under spoiler, side spoiler, rear under spoiler, tail gate spoiler and ventilated visor, as well as a a modified exhaust pipe and aluminum rims. The “Pleasure Style” has a more fashionable, less sporty design.

The Japanese Kei cars have certain benefits in taxes and safety and emissions requirements. In exchange, they must meet a maximum width and height. Filling that "box" makes it as space efficient as possible. That and tiny cube cars in Japan are cool.

There is nothing to get, this thing is just lame. Turn in your heartbeat then purchase this I guess... it is utterly passionless.

Dude, have you ever driven one of these? I drove a hot-rodded Suzuki kei car in Japan (loaner when my car was getting fixed) and I nearly $$$$ myself pulling out into traffic. Yes, they're small cars, but they weigh as much as a mailbox and handle like go-karts.
