Images of the new generation Honda Jazz / Fit have found their way online via what looks like an official model guide in Japanese, revealing not only the design of the new sub-compact but also its trim options for the Japanese market.
As expected, the new Honda Jazz / Fit will mostly retain its familiar looks, only now it features a much cleaner design aided by a body-colored panel instead of a traditional front grille and modern LED headlights. The rear end features a pair of slim taillights, as expected from our recent spy shots.
The interior will remain one of the most practical places to sit in the segment, with the dashboard adopting simple lines and way more tech features than before; this includes a standard 7-inch digital instrument cluster and a new infotainment system with connected services. The new Jazz / Fit is also getting the same, two-spoke steering wheel we first saw in the electric Honda e.
The images come from the Japanese Creative311, which also mentions that the new Honda Jazz / Fit is indeed getting a new hybrid powetrain that combines a 1.5-liter petrol four-cylinder with dual electric motors, which will be the only option for European customers.
The range of the new Honda Jazz / Fit in its home market in Japan will be divided into four trim levels: Basic, Ness, Luxe and the SUV-like Crosstar. Ness models will offer more vivid color combos both inside and out, as well as sporty 16-inch alloy wheels. Luxe models come with a bicolor leather interior and model-specific 16-inch alloy wheels.
The crossover-like Crosstar models are the only ones to get a proper-looking grille up front, together with additional body cladding, roof rails and a slightly increased ground clearance.
The 2019 Tokyo Motor Show opens its gates on October 23, so stay tuned for the full details on the 2020 Honda Jazz / Fit.
