Honda Jazz is due for a generation change, and the company has been working on the same from quite sometime now. The 2020 Honda Jazz has already been caught testing several times and is inching closer to its production form with ever passking day. The new model wil mark its global debut at this year's Tokyo Motor Show in October. Based on the various sightings, Auto Esporte has come up with a rendering to showcase how the fourth-generation Honda Jazz could look like.
The 2020 Honda Jazz departs from its current sharp and aggressive body lines, and adopts a more sedate and soft look. With the full model change, the Jazz will return to its roots and will fare a light/youthful design compared to the sporty design on the current model.
As per the speculative images, the highlights of the new model would be its curvaceous LED headlamps with LED DRLs, rakish windshield, a short bonnet, swept-back radiator grille and horizontal tail lamps. The front grille should get a chrome bar in a fashion typical of the company's latest styling theme. The new bumper would house circular fog lamps with chrome detailing around the circumference. On the inside, the new-gen Jazz is likely to receive a 7-inch driver information display similar to the one on the 2019 Honda Pilot.
Under the hood, the 2020 Honda Jazz will get a conventional turbocharged petrol engine, most likely a 1.0-litre VTEC Turbo three-cylinder unit. As per the press release divulging the world premiere information, there is also a hybrid powertrain on the cards, which should be a 1.5-litre petrol engine working together with two electric motors. This hybrid powertrain will make use of company's i-MMD dual-motor technology.
The 2020 Honda Jazz will be even available in a pure electric variant that will be available internationally in the early-2020. Its range is expected to be around 300 km. The Jazz EV will lock horns with the widely famous Nissan Leaf EV.
