Honda has taken the time to show us a prototype of their latest 2015 Honda Jazz. This prototype introduces a completely new body shell for the popular model, with a sleek and modern design that hints at the significant advances to be introduced in this latest model. The external dimensions have changed with the length being 15mm longer and the wheelbase 30mm longer helping to create an even more spacious cabin. As part of Honda’s ‘small series’ range, the third generation European Jazz will be built on the company’s global compact platform. It will retain the center fuel tank layout that is already found in the current model, as well as the Honda Civic and recently-announced Honda HR-V.
This space-saving layout delivers genuine customer benefits in terms of versatility, interior practicality and storage solutions. Due to go on sale in summer 2015, the new European Jazz will offer improved fuel economy and higher performance thanks to its new Earth Dreams Technology engine. The new 1.3 litre i-VTEC petrol engine is supported by either a six-speed manual (replacing the previous five-speed unit) or a CVT transmission.
