The new Honda Jazz will now come with squarish headlamps with LED inserts and LED DRLs. The tail lights will feautre a wrap-around design, along with LED inserts as well. The next-generation Honda Jazz is said to borrow its design cues from the latest generation Accord and Amaze sedans, available in both India and international markets.

The Honda Jazz will continue to be under the 4m length (3990mm to be exact), which will allow it to qualify for the excise benefits in the Indian market. However, Honda is said to have increased the width on the upcoming Jazz to allow for better cabin space for the passengers.

The next-gen Honda Jazz is also expected to come powered by a new two-motor hybrid setup. This is similar to the hybrid system seen on the latest-generation Accord sedan. However, Honda will also offer the new Jazz hatchback with the conventional-powered 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine seen on most of the current international models.

In India, the Honda Jazz currently on sale is offered with both a petrol and diesel engine. This includes a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 89bhp and 110Nm of torque. The diesel unit, on the other hand, comes in the form of a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine churning out 99bhp and 200Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox while the top-spec petrol variant is offered with an automatic CVT transmission.

Honda is currently also said to be working on an all-electric hatchback for the Indian market. The new electric hatchback will be based on the Jazz model and is expected to be introduced in the market, sometime in 2020.

Thoughts On The Next-Gen Honda Jazz

The next-gen Honda Jazz will come with a completely updated design, some of it borrowed from the current gen Amaze and Accord offerings. Once showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2019, we can expect it to come to the Indian market after its global launch in 2020.
