The next generation Honda Jazz, or Fit in other markets, was being caught running its road test. Wearing less camouflage compared to the previous spy shots in 2018, more spoilers are waiting in the wings.
It’s noticeable that the new 2020 model is designed in a new shape and presenting a bulbous outlook. Along the doorline, the crease design in the current model has shifted to a protruding one. The door mirrors have also been relocated and crossbars are added to the top.
The headlights are taller and more rounded, and there’s also a redesign of the inverted grille. To the rear, the taillights are turning into a horizontal position in two pieces, giving a wider look for the back.
We can visualise the 2020 Honda Jazz more clearly by looking at the pictures below by rendering guru Theophilus Chin.
Rumour has it that the new Fit will be introduced in the fall of 2019 at Tokyo Motor Show, and the two-motor hybrid hyper powertrain, Honda Hybrid i-MMD (Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive), can be expected this time. It works by shifting between electric power at lower speeds and gasoline-power at higher speeds automatically.
The high-tech behind Hybrid i-MMD is claimed to be “highly responsive, ultra-smooth driving”. If that’s what it is and is deployed into the fourth generation of Jazz, then it’s definitely a plus compared to the i-DCD system.
