Honda Jazz is one of the brand’s biggest sellers. According to a recent announcement by Honda, the Jazz, along with the Civic, CRV, Accord and the HRV make up 60% of Honda’s global sales. This is in part of the Jazz’s funky yet sporty good looks, ingenious use of space with its touted ULT Magic Seats and stellar fuel economy.
the Honda Jazz was the spiritual successor to the highly touted Honda Civic Hatchback of the 90s
First introduced in the Philippines in 2004, the Honda Jazz was the spiritual successor to the highly touted Honda Civic Hatchback of the 90s. It surprised the market at the time with Honda redefining hatchbacks as the sportier alternative to sedans.
You can consider the release as revolutionary, creating a paradigm shift from how we saw hatchbacks from being tight and wheezy penalty boxes (see Kia Pride) to caffeine-induced pocket-rockets.
We’ve seen the Jazz evolve to become one of the best-selling car models
Throughout the Honda Jazz’s model life and 3 generations, we’ve seen it evolve and redefine the segment to become one of Philippine’s best-selling and respected car models.
The current iteration of the Honda Jazz 2019 is a far cry from the first generation, featuring big-car tech in a small package. It shed its cutesy good looks and bulbous features for sharp racy lines and boxy features, whilst retaining its core identity, good looks, lots of space and fuel economy.

Fans of the Honda Jazz in the Philippines have been salivating at the idea that Honda will soon be introducing the Fourth Generation in the coming months considering that the current model has been available in our shores since 2014. It seems like the wait is almost over.
Spy-shots of the Honda Jazz 2020 has been popping up online. Despite the heavy camouflage cladded around the vehicle, we get to have an idea what the iconic car would look like.
New Honda Jazz 2020 - Spy Video footage
From these shots, we can see that the new Honda Jazz will have new LED projector head-lights mounted on an all-new front grille that is reminiscent of Honda’s current design language the front bumper itself has is pushed forward away from the grill just like on the Honda Civic and other cars in the line-up.
The tail-lamps seem to have undergone a change as well, with horizontally mounted tail lamps replacing the current vertical set-up.

The interior of the Honda Jazz 2020 gets major changes as well, featuring a digital speedometer that seems to have taken inspiration from the current Honda Civic, and a floating touchscreen infotainment system that should be compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
What is interesting to note from the existing spy shots is the steering wheel that looks nothing like anything from Honda’s current line-up and in fact, looks like something out of Mazda’s catalog.
This is a pre-production model anyway and this may be a placeholder, or this could be an initial look of things to come from Honda. In any case, all we can do is wait and see.
