The old nose was pointing down to the floor and would have generated downforce at the tip. The air then gets used over the top of the car.
The new nose tip cuts straight through the air and allows air that would have otherwise been pushed up and over the car to get underneath it.
Can that be seen as only a cosmetic change?
