With new hatchbacks launching left and right, Honda wants a piece of that action. Honda teases the all-new 2020 Jazz with a side shot. The all-new hatchback is set to debut on October 23 at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan.
The single teaser shot of the Jazz is shadowy in nature and shows only the side of the vehicle, with only certain parts of the hatchback being seen. From what we’ve observed, the front of the hatchback seems to have a softer front fascia. There aren't many angles present in the picture but what can be seen is the front also features a new two-layer design, similar to what the Kia Picanto has.
The headlights of the Jazz have also undergone a design change. While they aren't as angular as the current generation, they look boxier and more akin to that of the design language of the Mobilio and Brio. What is unknown is what kind of lighting Honda will include for the Philippine version.
On the other end, the rear of the vehicle now has a new design and a shark fin antenna. Honda seems to have replaced the vertical taillights in favor of a horizontal set. An odd choice since most of the previous generations of the Jazz has been had with vertical themed taillights. A radical change but only the public can decide if the newly designed tail lights will be a welcomed addition to the vehicle.
The C-pillar has also seen a redesign as the window in the rear appears to be wider compared to the current generation. The rear of the vehicle also appears to be softer in its design compared to the current model.
With the Jazz getting an all-new model it's still unknown as to how it will affect its stablemate the City. The Philippine version of the popular hatchback shares its underpinnings with the City, so whatever new design language and technology Honda applies to the Jazz could very well make its way to the next generation City.
As for the engines, that’s something we have yet to see. We will update you once we get information when it officially launches at the Tokyo Motor Show on October 23.
