The next-gen Honda Jazz has been undergoing road testing since some time in Europe and North America. The new model is expected to be shown for the first time at the Tokyo Motor Show 2019 slated to take place in October this year. It will get an all-new design with larger and more squarish headlights that feature daytime running lamps and LED projector lenses.
The overall design language of the new Jazz is expected to look more rounded and will feature styling cues seen on the newer Honda models like the Accord and even the Amaze. At the back, the Jazz gets horizontally positioned wraparound tail-lamps with LED elements. The new car seems to be styled like the Mercedes-Benz B-class when viewed from the rear three quarters.
The next-gen Jazz will be 3,990mm in length, and that means it will qualify for the excise benefits in India just like the current model. Honda will, however, increase the car’s width in order to facilitate more room in the cabin and boot.
Under the hood, Honda is likely to introduce a two-motor hybrid setup, similar to the one in the latest-gen Accord. There will also be conventional engines on offer, including the 1.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged motor that does duty in the Civic hatchback sold internationally.
Expect more details to trickle in as the launch nears.
