Facelift: Honda Civic Hybrid

From our friends at Jalopnik.com:

The Honda Civic Hybrid receives a facelift. Clearly this is to integrate the new Honda face... that somewhat chunky, funky, toothy new plenum style grill a la the new Pilot. Hopefully the subtle restyling at the front also optimized the cd:

Hi y'all,

My SOTP guess is that the new version has a higher Cd than the older one:

Ok, maybe I am naive or just not enough of a car buff, but isn't that just the Coupe nose put on a hybrid? It looks to me like the same exact front end that's on my civic, fogs on the sides, upper and lower grill, I looked up a 2007 civic hybrid picture and to me it looks identical with the exception of the fogs...?
