According to several reports, 2017 Honda Jazz will come upgraded. This small city hatchback is offered primarily for the European market. It is pretty much a renamed version of Honda Fit, which is available in many different parts of the world. So far, we have seen three generations of it. Current model was released in 2013, as 2014 year model. It came with plenty of significant improvements and it is still pretty much fresh, both in terms of look and technologies. However, if we look at the usual time of production of each generation, we could conclude that it is pretty much time for a mid-cycle refresh.
2017 Honda Jazz details
Although there are many reports about 2017 Honda Jazz and its refresh, exact details are still unknown. So, it is still hard to make some predictions about possible changes and what we can expect from refreshed model. One thing is for sure, base design will remain unchanged. New model will continue to ride on the same platform. Over 27 percent of the body is made of high-strength-steel (HSS), which provides massive weight savings and better overall performance. When it is about styling, we could expect several changes. This aspect of the car will probably come with most modifications. The 2017 Honda Jazz will come with improved exterior look, and most of the changes will definitely come at the front. We will probably see a revisited front fascia, with modified grille, lighting and several other tweaks. Interior is also suffer some changes.
