New Honda Jazz pictures

New Honda Jazz will be more spacious and cheaper to run

Pictures of the new Honda Jazz have been revealed ahead of its public debut at the Paris Motor Show in October. The car gets an angular design that’s in keeping with the latest Honda Civic and the recently announced new Honda HR-V.

The new Jazz is 15mm longer than the model it replaces while the wheelbase – the distance between the front and rear wheels that's a good indication of cabin space – has grown by 30mm.

As in the car it replaces, the Jazz’s fuel tank is located in the centre of the vehicle to increase boot space, allowing for more rear-passenger room and extra storage areas throughout the interior. It also gets Honda’s Magic Seat system, which means you can fold the rear seats completely flat for bulky luggage or fold the back seat squabs up to squeeze in taller items.

Powering the car will be a 1.3-litre petrol engine complete with what Honda calls ‘Earth Dreams Technology’. That will make it more economical than the 1.3-litre petrol fitted to the current car, which can return fuel economy of 63mpg and costs just £20 to tax annually. Although there’s been no conformation from Honda, the Jazz could also get the 1.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid that features in the new HR-V. This would mean free road tax and fuel economy closer to 85mpg.

New suspension should mean the car is more comfortable to ride in, and it's also said to be quieter.

Prices are set to remain close to the current car, which starts from around £12,000. Direct rivals include the Hyundai ix20 MPV and the Ford B-MAX MPV.

Expect Honda to release more information on the new Jazz in the run-up to Paris. In the meantime, for all the latest Honda reviews, visit the Carbuyer Honda reviews page.
