2020 Honda Jazz rendered – a softer looking 4th-gen

2020 Honda Jazz rendered – a softer looking 4th-gen

Last month, our spy photographers caught the next-generation Honda Jazz running road trials, and though clad to the hilt with the usual camouflage wrap, there was plenty to suggest that the styling of the fourth-gen will have a softer, less aggressive focus compared to the current third-gen model.

Now, the new Jazz has been visualised by rendering wizard Theophilus Chin, based on that gleaned from the latest spyshot set. The headlights – which feature square projectors – are taller, and the grille is a more conventional-looking design, giving the new car a more rounded outlook reminiscent of that presented by the first two generations.

At the side, the door mirrors have been slightly relocated, and the side surfacing has been simplified, with a traditional high-set shoulder-line in place of the current model’s prominent shoulder creases. Elsewhere, the tail lights drop the vertical presentation and are now horizontal two-piece items to help widen the look of the car.

There should be very little deviation in the petrol and hybrid powertrains for the new Jazz, which is expected to make its debut at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, but changes to the driveline are in store. The automaker says it is planning to deploy its two-motor Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) hybrid system across its entire lineup of vehicles.

This will include a more compact i-MMD system for small vehicles, which is reportedly set to debut along with the new Jazz in Tokyo. The system will replace the once-problematic Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD) currently seen in the Jazz Hybrid, which utilises a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

    • Simply stunning and modern! An eye-catching car design that suits everyone’s taste especially millenials. Proton should learn from Honda how to create a world-class design hatchback and not repeat the same game over mistake with their Iriz

    • Proton no need to learn from Honda how to create a nice looking car. They need to learn from Perodua how to be successful. Since its launch in November 2018, already 150,000 Myvis have been sold, joining the 1.1 million existing Myvis on the road.

      Truly, Malaysians know which is a safe and worthy car to buy

        MYVI sell well because they using Toyota technology. MYVI is the cheaper version of Vios!

        In term of safety, I do not agreed that P2 is better than proton. If you ever test drive P2 car vs Proton car, you will agreed that Proton is better in safety!

        • So basically all that success was due to Toyota. So the locals didn’t do anything, it was all Toyota effort and hardwork. So what is there for Malaysians to be proud about Perodua, we all should be ashamed because 27 years later we still cannot make our own car. We continue to rebadge since Day One. We all feel so shamed.

            Is the new Myvi not good? Affordable, safety wise is properly equipped, looks wise is interesting and what else u want?Remember Proton Savvy? Just one example will do. Is Savvy so good? How safety is that car or how good is that car? Proton is crap. Now Proton is talked by many is also because of Geely. Geely company bought high stakes in Proton. Geely has taken over Proton. Geely brought changes in Proton. Because of Geely, Proton got X70 with interesting techs. If not, Proton wouldn’t have climbed up now

    Somehow it is a throwback to the 2nd generation Jazz. The current design looks much nicer. Bad choice if it is true.

    A Honda is a Honda. A Perodua is a Perodua. Let’s call a spade a spade, folks. Who cares if it resembles a Myvi or an Iriz. I’m more excited about the turbo (FINALLY) and the new interior, not to mention new features.
