A Japanese magazine has rendered a possible exterior of the Honda Jazz facelift (or Honda Fit facelift in Japan), which is reportedly under development.
The rendering retains the silhouette of the current model, but features a new face inspired by the latest Honda Civic. It gets a bolder chrome grille flanked by LED headlamps, new bumper design, slightly refined side profile and new taillamps.
The report states that it will be 30 kg lighter than the current model. As for engine options, the Honda Jazz facelift is tipped to pack the company’s new 1.0L Turbo engine, which produced 127 hp in a Honda Civic prototype.
Another powertrain option for the Honda Fit facelift in Japan is a 1.5L Hybrid variant. It combines a 1.5L i-VTEC engine with an electric motor powered by a L-Ion battery pack, which is paired to a 7-speed DCT gearbox.
