The third generation model Honda Jazz (sold as the Honda Fit in some countries) will bow in the Japanese market in the final quarter of this calender year. From early 2014, it will set off on its world tour to pick up the chase from where the current model retires.

Thanks to these scans of leaked press shots, your patience may not be put to the test until the year end. While we can’t vouch for the authenticity of these leaks, we expect the incoming model to look quite similar to the one seen here. In fact it is reported that these images come straight from Honda’s press desk.

At the tape, the 2014 Honda Jazz is 3,960mm long, about 60mm longer than the current car. The wheelbase is 8cm longer to stretch an already spacious cabin. The boot volume would enlarge to 400 liters. With every passing attempt, Honda has set the bar higher in interior packaging efficiency. Honda’s “Magic Seats” technology that diversifies seating combinations (in 180 ways to be exact) is not going to miss out either.

Under the hood, for Indian and European markets, Honda’s recently launched Earth Dreams diesel engine comes into play. For Europe the 1.6-liter i-DTEC will fill the engine bay while for India, the well-localized 1.5-liter variation would come in as the trump card.

The car will get 1.2-liter and 1.4-liter engines in other markets. The former, used on the Brio and Amaze, should complete the engine range here. According to another media report, Honda engineers have designed a three cylinder petrol engine that can take the redesigned Jazz 35.4 kilometers for one liter of fuel. The availability of this engine maybe restricted to certain parts of the world.

Sub-4m, 1.5L diesel, 400 liter boot, better than ever before fuel efficiency and the pride of owning a Honda..is Maruti sensing the start of a headache?

    the new jazz looks uber cool. also with the type of engines it could give stiff competition to Hyundai. I haope they get the pricing right.

    I read ” a petrol engine with 35 kmpl” if this is launched in India i am definitely gonna buy this car

    The design looks like a rav 4 or a prius on both front and back. Nothing super impressive in the looks of it. But I guess, Honda will not settle for just something at par they normally WOW their consumers.

    It’s a pity that Honda stops all sales of her compactvans in Russia. Many people here are admired with Honda Jazz/Fit )

    Absolutely admire the new Jazz. Looks stunning, has the space and boot of a sedan, gives mileage like a bike.

    Would the new generation Jazz be the best ever hatch launched in India ???? Toooo good. Hope the India release is not far away.

    I doubt HONDA will cause any Headache for MARUTI.

    In India people are sooo.. obsessed with SWIFT & SWIFT DZIRE. The Sales numbers speak for themselves.

    BRIO & AMAZE couldn’t dethrone SWIFT & DZIRE & JAZZ will be priced higher that BRIO so no worries for MARUTI. JAZZ might clinch some numbers of MARUTI’s sales, that too from the Urban ppl, Rural sales will definitely account only for SWIFT

    Cheers,
    $@!

    The blue car looks more like a Civic or the front looks much like the Civic.

    Nice Scoop……a correction-in line 3 it should be ’2014′ instead of ’2013′.
