The all-new fourth-generation Honda Jazz has been revealed at the Tokyo motor show, headlined by a hybrid powertrain and new safety equipment.
In Japanese and European markets, the Jazz (or Fit) will only be available as a petrol-electric hybrid. The new Jazz will be equipped with the company’s two-motor hybrid system.
According to Honda the system will “drive smoothly by an electric motor for virtually all situations of everyday driving and realize outstanding environmental performance as well as excellent ride comfort with powerful acceleration and comfortable driving.”
The new Jazz will also get the full Honda Sensing suite as standard which includes autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, as well as the new short-distance collision mitigation braking system.
Style-wise the maximising upright profile remains with redesigned lights, bumpers and bonnet, while a newly-designed A-pillar is said to improve frontal visibility.
On the inside, the instrument panel features a flat-topped design which emphasises horizontal and straight lines, and windshield wipers are positioned to be barely visible from inside the cabin.
Although not referred to as Magic Seats, the rear seats of the all-new Jazz will remain “as versatile as that of the previous generation.”
Honda’s Australian arm is yet to confirm local availability, specifications and pricing.
