The 2017 Honda Jazz features subtle visual changes. Up front, the repositioned grille is fitted higher up, while the new headlamp cluster and restyled bumper with fog lamps are noticeable. The profile looks the same but for the new design wheels.

At the rear, there's a sportier tailgate spoiler, tweaked taillights with revised cluster and more stylish bumper with what looks like light reflectors and chrome underlining.

In Japan, Honda will offer the 2017 Jazz with black inserts on the front bumper and black ORVMs also in a grade. The company has even added new body colour choices for the refreshed model which are wine red, gun metallic and light blue.

The 2017 Honda Jazz's interior has appeared in a spy shot but failed to reveal much. New dashboard trim, new instrument cluster backlighting and a new infotainment system are the anticipated changes. The Indian-spec facelifted Jazz could get the 7.0-inch Digipad touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation and MirrorLink.

It was rumoured that the facelifted Honda Jazz would gain the 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. However, the leaked image of the planned configurations confirms that Honda won't offer the small turbo mill in the Jazz. In the safety aspect, the new model will feature Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver-assistive technologies like Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Road Departure Mitigation and more.

Honda could rollout the new Jazz internationally from the second half of the year.
