It looks like Honda will be jazzing up the 2020 model year Jazz going by these latest batch of spy shots. The next generation hatchback, which will be based on an all-new platform, may also be coming to a dealership near you with a hybrid powertrain — while a full-electric variant is rumoured to be in the works too which could have a driving range of 300km.
The prototype appears to feature an all-new body shell which, unlike the current edgy design on sale, seems more rounded. It appears larger too and features a redesigned front fascia along with larger headlights (with LED DRLs) that flank a new look grille (which could well be ditching the chrome strip) while around the back of the vehicle it sports fresh looking LED taillights and a bigger bumper.
The cabin should pack a new design for the steering wheel with steering mounted controls and a new floating touchscreen infotainment system. The new Jazz could be revealed at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show where we’ll know more about that hybrid drivetrain that’ll likely be a 1.5-litre four-cylinder with two electric motors.
