The next Honda Jazz will get an all-new 125bhp, 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine
We informed you earlier that Honda is working on the next-generation Jazz hatchback, which will also receive an electric powertrain. The Electric Jazz is reportedly to offer a range of over 300km. Meanwhile, Honda has started testing the next-gen Jazz or Fit in some markets. Going by the spy images, it is visible that the next model will receive major changes in terms of design.
The test mule was covered in heavy cloth, and there could be extra body panels to hide the vehicle’s shape. However, the cab-forward MPV-ish design is likely to continue with the next Jazz as well. The front fascia will be all-new and will receive new large projector headlights and strip across the top for the turn signals. Pictures suggest that the hatchback will continue to offer extra window between the A- and B-pillars for better outside visibility. Similar to the front, the rear will also receive major changes. It is expected to get newly designed tail-lights with horizontal layout. Also See – Next-gen Honda Jazz Rendered
If media reports are to be believed, the new Honda Fit or Jazz will go on sale in Japan in 2019. It will be based on a new, wider chassis. Additionally, the hatchback will gain an all-new 1.0-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine that also powers the Civic in some countries. This engine produces 125bhp of power. The hybrid version will also get a new two-motor layout instead of the single-motor version in the current car. The cabin will also receive major changes in the form of advanced navigation system with traffic information and in-car wi-fi.
The outgoing model was first unveiled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, and was launched internationally in 2015. The company had introduced the mid-life facelift earlier this year, which gets minimal changes in terms of cabin features.
