Honda has taken the wraps off its new Jazz supermini model, which is due to go on sale in the UK in October.
With a roomier and more versatile interior featuring a ‘double trunk’ boot it pro-mises to live up to the previous model’s reputation for innovative interior thinking and practicality.
With a larger body, Honda has been able to create more room inside and, like the previous model, the rear seats dive down in one action to create a larger load area.
The boot area can also be configured in four ways to accommodate different sized loads.
Two new petrol engines appear under the bonnet, with both featuring Honda’s i-VTEC valve technology to save fuel.
A 1.2-litre offers 90bhp with the 1.4 delivering 100bhp.
The 1.2 returns a claimed 55.4mpg with CO2 emissions of 120g/km, while the larger engine delivers 54.3mpg and 123g/km of CO2.
Both models will be available with the new six-speed i-Shift semi-automatic transmission.
Elsewhere, Honda claims improved ride comfort thanks to a revised chassis and a number of revisions to the suspension set-up.
