Honda has released first images and details of the new European-spec Jazz prototype ahead of its public debut next month at the Paris Motor Show.
The new Jazz features a seek design and a completely new body shell. Compared to the outgoing model the wheelbase has grown by 30mm, while the overall length is 15mm longer, offering a more spacious cabin.
Built on the company’s global compact platform, it will retain the centre fuel tank layout, delivering genuine customer benefits in terms of versatility, interior practicality and storage solutions.
Other updates include Honda Magic Seats and a new suspension system.
From launch the new Jazz will be offered with a new 1.3-litre i-VTEC petrol engine linked to either a six-speed manual or a CVT transmission.
Sales are scheduled to start summer 2015 with pricing to be confirmed closer to market launch.
