It seems that the craze for the faux crossover is touching new heights across the globe. With each passing week, we saw a new hatchback turned crossover in the market. And a latest example of this tread appeared at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show – the Honda Jazz X-Road. The Jazz X-Road is essentially a custom concept of the facelifed Jazz, which is scheduled to launch in India before 2018 festive season.
Painted in red shade, the Honda Jazz X-Road features silver front and rear skid plates, side skirts and door protection.

The hatch-crossover sits on 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. Read –Upcoming Honda Cars In India
