Following the launch of the hybrid Jazz in 2020, the next electrified model will be the Civic in 2021.
The CR-V Hybrid pairs two electric motors with a 2.0-litre petrol engine and a CVT transmission. However, given its smaller dimensions, the Jazz supermini will likely have a smaller combustion engine and less power.
The new Jazz must remain familiar enough to appeal to its loyal owners, of which there are many, typically older buyers, while also bringing in new people to Honda’s entry-level model.
The spy shots pictured here, which show the Peugeot 208 rival testing in disguise, hint at a minor evolution for the fourth-generation Jazz. The space-maximising upright profile and tall glasshouse remains, but with more curved lines and redesigned lights, bumpers and bonnet.
