Honda has released the first images of its refreshed Jazz for the European market ahead of the car’s debut in Frankfurt next month. Aside from updates to the exterior styling and interior trim, the car will be available with a 130 PS 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol engine for the first time on the continent.

The European Jazz gets a slightly different front end look to that seen here, with a new grille and slightly revised headlight cluster to be found. Also on, a new bumper design, which features aggressive contours around the air vents.

A new Dynamic grade available for the car adds a thinner front splitter beneath the lower grille and a triple-strake diffuser to the rear bumper – both items are finished with a sporty red accent line. At the rear, the trim strip on the tailgate is now done in gloss black, and updates to the exterior are rounded off by the addition of a new metallic colour called Skyride Blue to the options list.

The new Dynamic grade also adds on LED headlights, front fog lamps, side sill skirts, a tailgate spoiler and gloss-black 185/55 R16 alloy wheels, while the interior features upholstery dressed with a unique pinstripe pattern as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, which are enhanced by orange stitching.

The Euro 6-compliant 130 PS petrol mill will be seen in the Dynamic grade, with an optional CVT automatic transmission available for the engine. As before, the Jazz will continue to be available with a 102 PS 1.3 litre i-VTEC petrol engine across all trim levels, except for the Dynamic grade.

Standard equipment on the European Jazz includes cruise control, heated seats, automatic headlights and a City-Brake Active safety system. Higher grade variants will come with items such as keyless entry/push-start ignition and safety kit like Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Traffic Sign Recognition.
