The next generation Honda Jazz is slated for a global debut later this year. However, ahead of the unveil, a leaked image of the new hatchback has made its way online revealing the all-new design. The leaked image is that of the 2020 Honda Jazz Type-R and reveals the completely new design language on the offering. The new Jazz will be showcased at the 2020 Tokyo Motor Show early next year. As the image suggests, the new gen Jazz gets a complete redesign, while retaining the generous proportions that it is known for.
Notable changes on the 2020 Honda Jazz include the new sweptback headlamp design with a thick chrome bar on the honeycomb mesh grille. The car isn’t dramatically different in profile from the outgoing model but it does get a completely new look in comparison. Also prominent is the glasshouse area that has grown bigger and will allow more light to enter the cabin lending a roomier feel. The Type-R version does bring some sportier elements to the exterior including the bumper, side skirts, larger alloy wheels, and a roof mounted spoiler. The grille also gets the red Honda logo, which remains specific to the sportier models in the company’s stable.
