The 2014 Honda Jazz (called as the Honda Fit in some markets) is the next global small car that you and I are waiting for. As Honda is inching closer to the world premiere of the new car, we stumbled upon a few more leaked images of the new Jazz's interior.
We have brought you enough number of renderings and leaked images of the car's exterior which subscribes to an entirely new design philosophy compared to earlier generations. From these leaked shots, its proven that the shift holds true in case of the interior as well.
As you can see from these images reportedly leaked by the same Japanese magazine carrying the earlier set of images, the design and layout have nothing in common with the current car. Smooth and curvy cabin elements have made way for squarish components. However the overall design can be recognized and connected to bigger Honda cars like the new Civic and Accord.
The 2014 Honda Jazz will be a bigger car with a longer wheelbase but the overall length is expected to not exceed four meters.
Caranddriverbrasil.uol.com.br reports that the wheelbase has extended by 8cm while the rear legroom has been enhanced by 6.5cm. Interior packaging is reportedly exceeding efficiency levels witnessed previously.
As far as India is concerned, the new car would offer a diesel engine alongside the 1.2-liter i-VTEC petrol engine. The 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel motor that debuted in the Amaze has a rich chance of powering the new Jazz when it comes to India next year, while a 1.6-liter version of this oil burner would find a place in the Europe-bound variants.
The 2014 Honda Jazz will premiere globally at this year's Tokyo Motor Show scheduled in November.
