Launch Date: Jan 2021

The fourth-gen Honda Jazz had already showcase at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. This new model would be better than a new car launch in India in 2020

The Jazz would go on sale in February 2020 in the Japanese and the European markets, and the ASEAN spec model would unveil later. It would be introduced in the Indian market sometime by the end of 2020. 

The new Jazz looks quirky and old-school with its bulbous headlamp shape. The front grille does not get its traditional Honda design of chrome slat. It features a body-coloured panel that joins the headlamps and a small recess below it. 

Another quirky design element is the C-pillar that drops down on the wrap-around tail lamps. The large tailgate has an MPV-like stance to it.
