Otherwise the car looks very good. I love the front profile and the side profile looks good.

I think this will be a hit with a diesel engine. I am eagerly waiting for the launch.

The tail going up looks good especially from sides.In some shades of color it may not look good but on a silver color model it looks good.

Below slide show video has pictures from all angles.


RS version

Thanks for posting the video. The car looks awesome from all angles. The RS version is pretty striking especially the console.

Agreed with all those posts. Also, look at how skinny and under-tyred it looks - those wheels do a terrible job of filling up those arches.
On the whole, it looks like the designers were trying a little too hard. Globally Honda's come in for a lot of flak for making boring cars with unimaginative styling - case in point being the new Civic that's been launched in the US and UK - which is why I think they've tried a little too hard with the new Jazz.
I like the styling on the old one - clean, elegant, proportionate. This one has pointless creases, the bumpers and too busy and the dash looks pretty tacky.

The silver lining though is that they'll launch it with the 1.5L diesel that's doing duty in the Amaze.

What's wrong with Honda interior designers ? The center console looks like some data acquisition machine! It's so blunt and nothing exciting! Only the pricing is what I'm eagerly looking forward to!

Looks great from the outside, I feel. Though the center console looks a bit tacky, I hope that this is just the prototype and the final version will be finished better.

Would love to see the RS version here to do battle with the GT TSI, Liva Sportivo and the (upcoming) Abarth Punto.

Finally we get an arm rest as standard and the missing cup holder on the passenger side up front is plain weird! But again, this is the Hybrid version, wait until we get to see pictures of the other variants. Maybe the dash 'may' get the dials. Say hello again to the iconic Magic Seats and the instrument cluster gets a a refresh as well.

Feel that Honda is back on track!

Their R&D team does a great job on Interior space utilization, but now it seems some people were hired for the Exterior design as well.


However, The interior dash touch panel seems to be tacky and looks more like an aftermarket job(at least in the pictures). It needs to be shrunked a little bit in the dash.

Out of all the hatchbacks coming out in '14, the Jazz takes the cake. And Hondas always look good in person. Excited to see this in flesh now. But the dash could do with some neat dials, its looking pretty plain jane!

Looks awesome in white. Rear seat has loads of legroom and wide enough for 3 to be seated comfortably.

The all new cluster. But again, this is the Hybrid version, if it is for all versions then great! Note the gear indicator, neat arrangement for the mileage indicator, do note the cruise control option there and amber goes blue!

Yes all versions will get that.

Hybrid version gets this,except for the analog speedo meter all other dials are digital.

One word: Sexy!
Hot design and a diesel engine in the kitty, this JAZZ is FIT to take on the i20!
Tail lamps have shades of Volvo X60, MPVesque proportions and flow lines across doors hide that proportion. Bring it on!

You guys really sure this is THE replacement model !!!. I mean it looks more like an outgoing model than a new (replacement) model in comparison with the last gen Jazz which just dint survive in the Indian market.
that said,no disrespect to designers but they seem to be clueless how to make the best a little more better.

The new Jazz is improved over the outgoing model, but...

Quote:
... Honda appears to have thrown most of its budget at getting the handling and ride right. This means that, in the prototype at least, interior design and quality have suffered. So while the dash is simple and functional, it’s not in the same class as the Polo’s for materials, trim and build.
