Showcased at the Paris Motor Show last year in a pre-production form, the Jazz for Europe gets a chrome grille, as compared to a black grille seen on the Japanese/American specification model.

At the time of the launch, Honda will offer the hatchback with a 1.3-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine capable of 102 PS. The engine is paired to a new 6-speed manual transmission (the previous Jazz came with a 5-speed manual), or an optional CVT gearbox. Later in the year, reports state that the Jazz Hybrid with a 1.5-liter petrol engine with an electric motor will be launched.
