The all-new Honda Jazz is reportedly to be powered by a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder P10A2 VTEC turbocharged engine.
It is no secret that Honda is working on the next generation Jazz hatchback, which has already been spotted multiple times testing on foreign soil. The hatchback is scheduled to make its global debut in October at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. This time, the Honda Jazz will receive the smaller capacity turbocharged petrol engine.
The all-new Honda Jazz is reportedly to be powered by a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder P10A2 VTEC turbocharged engine. This powertrain was already used by the Honda Civic Turbo in the European market. It is capable of producing 130PS of maximum power and 200Nm of torque. This engine will be used in the top-spec Jazz RS variant, which currently equipped with a 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine.
Similar to the Honda Jazz, the next-gen Toyota Yaris will receive the 1.5-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces around 150PS of power. The new Yaris will be based on the Toyota’s new TNGA platform, which also underpins the new-gen Corolla and the C-HR crossover. The new Jazz will be designed and developed around the thoroughly modified version of the existing platform, which will also underpin the next City sedan.
The Japanese media reports that the 2020 Honda Jazz will use a ground breaking center tank layout, which results in a spacious cabin and versatile seating arrangements. In addition to the sporty RS model, the new Jazz will also receive a hybrid variant. The new model will be equipped with brand’s newly developed i-MMD hybrid system. This system will also power other Honda cars in future.
