Honda is set to update the Jazz Shuttle in Japan with additional safety equipment and safety features, after leaked brochure images were uploaded by CarDrive.

The Jazz Shuttle will receive the Honda Sensing suite, which includes a host of safety and driver assistance systems. These include Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Crusie Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CBMS) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW).

Customers in Japan can also specify additional packages that introduces Honda LaneWatch, Blind Spot Information System, Cross Traffic Monitor and Auto High-Beam Headlights to the Jazz station wagon.

On the powertrain front, the Jazz Shuttle will likely retain its pre-update offerings, starting with the brand’s Sport Hybrid i-DCD hybrid. Similar to the new City Hybrid and Jazz Hybrid we have here, the powertrain is made up of a 1.5 litre Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC engine, seven-speed DCT gearbox with an integrated electric motor and lithium-ion battery.

The non-hybrid route should involve a 1.5 litre direct-injection DOHC i-VTEC engine gets mated to a CVT gearbox. On both hybrid and petrol models, power goes to the front wheels as standard while an all-wheel drive option is offered.

Visually, the car appears to be largely unchanged from before, with small revisions like the addition of LED fog lights on selected variants. Inside, the cup holders in the centre console have been improved to be more practical; there’s a new infotainment system; heated seats; and Plasmacluster technology makes its way to the dual-zone climate control system.
