Honda Jazz: New design revealed ahead of Frankfurt Motor Show

Honda Jazz

The new-look Honda Jazz has been revealed ahead of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

As well as updates to the exterior styling and interior trim, the new Jazz will also be available with a 130PS (96kW) 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine for the first time in Europe.

Exterior changes align the Jazz with the latest Honda family style, incorporating the 'Solid Wing Face' headlight signature and grille.

The front bumper is sharply sculpted, with more aggressive contours around the air vents. At the rear, shallower grille sections are linked by a gloss black trim strip above a trapezoid lower section.

Updates to the exterior are rounded off by the addition of metallic Skyride Blue as a new colour option.

Honda's 130PS petrol engine combines high output with low fuel consumption, and officially achieves a fuel economy of 52.3mpg and CO2 emissions from 124g/km.

The 130PS petrol engine is offered as part of a new Dynamic grade, which adds a thinner front splitter beneath the lower grille, and triple-strake diffuser to the rear bumper.

It will be available to order from November, with deliveries in early 2018.
