The new Honda Jazz is Honda’s premium midlevel hatch. The second-generation Jazz has a premium feel that the previous model did not have.
All new Jazz is built on the Exciting H design philosophy. The front fascia has a large grille and chrome lining that blends seamlessly with the sweptback headlamps. A redesigned bumper offers a larger air dam and circular fog lamps on each side. There are very few changes to the side profile, other than the sharp lines and boxy appearance. The reflector inserts are now placed horizontally in the tail-lights. It comes with 15-inch alloy wheels.
The Jazz’s interiors are very similar to the City. The Jazz features include:
- A 5-inch LCD touchscreen display infotainment system with touch-sensitive air-conditioning.
- An instrument cluster with a blue highlight.
- 2-spoke steering wheels mounted with audio controls and comfortable seat upholstery with ample leg/head/shoulder space.
