1. Honda Jazz 2020 leaked
We’ve talked about the up-coming 2020, fourth-generation Honda Jazz before. At that time, it was spy shots. Most of them were blurry and the prototype, of course, had that digital camo that they’re putting in test units.
Recently though, several pictures of the 2020 Honda Jazz had been leaked just a couple of days ahead of the 2019 Toyko Motor Show. It comes in the form of several pictures of a Japanese magazine which was then posted on a Japanese website called Creative Trend.
2. Honda Jazz 2020: How it looks
To put it in simple terms, Honda made it simpler. It now has rounded features and the aggressive looks of the previous generation Jazz are gone. Although the hatchback didn’t change in size, it looks cuter than before.
This is the new 2020 Honda Jazz. It lost much of the angular features present on the old version
Upfront of the Honda Jazz 2020, the headlights, like most of the front features, have become less angular. The LED daytime running lights are also integrated into the headlight cluster. As for the other features of the front fascia, the front intake is significantly smaller providing for a simpler overall design.
The interior of the 2020 Honda Jazz looks very minimalist
At the back, the vertical tail-lights that we have on the current version has been ditched and is now replaced by horizontally oriented, two-piece tail-lights. The tailgate, as well as the rear bumper, also got revamped with this new line that runs across as well as this arch framing the license plate.

3. Honda Jazz 2020: A simpler, nearly bare interior
While we’re sure that the 2020 Honda Jazz has more onboard tech than the previous version, this leak shows that the 2020 Honda Jazz features a very simple, minimalist looking dash. The Steering wheel, interestingly enough, also looks like the one aboard the Honda E.
Features wise, the 2020 Honda Jazz looks like it’s getting an electronic parking brake and a 7-inch touchscreen display. Other variants though will be getting a 9-inch display.
And yeah, the Japanese-spec Honda Jazz or rather, the Honda Fit will be coming in four trim levels; the Basic, the Ness, Luxe, and Crosstar. The Crosstar will be coming with a slightly different body kit that will make it look sportier than the first three trims. There’s also a 2020 Honda Jazz Type R. Yeah!
The Jazz Type R might be coming with a K20C1 engine and we hope it gets here in the Philippines
4. Honda Jazz 2020: Speculations on the powertrain
According to a source, the new Jazz will come powered by a smaller i-MMD (Intelligent Multi-mode Drive) hybrid power train. It’s a 1.5 liter inline-4 combined with two electric motors. We highly doubt though that Honda Philippines will be bringing in the hybrid from the get-go and instead will offer a similar engine to the one we have on our current Honda Jazz.
