Honda Jazz facelift is nearing its launch in India, but before that happens, Honda Cars India has released a little sneak-peak of the new Jazz hatchback. The official teaser of the Honda Jazz facelift was released only a couple of days before its launch on 19 July. Along with a teaser, Honda also announced an online contest. The new Honda Jazz will come with a host of cosmetic updates and features as well. The Jazz was first launched in India in 2014 and has had some stiff competition from Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Hyundai i20.
The facelifted version of the Honda Jazz was first showcased at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Jazz's styling follows Honda's design language with the 'Solid Wing Face' design that can be seen on sedans like Amaze and new Civic.
New Honda Jazz facelift will feature a new front grille, headlamp cluster with DRLs and a sharper front bumper. The B-pillar is finished in black to appeal the young buyers and ORVMs, grille and multi-spoke alloys too are finished in black. The rear of the new Honda Jazz gets minor cosmetic upgrades but largely is identical to the current outgoing model.
