Honda has released pictures and details of its next-generation Jazz subcompact car.
The near-production prototype, which will be unveiled at the Paris auto show next month, shows a car that's sleeker and longer than the current model. Sporty touches include slim wrap-around headlamps, bolder air-intake vents, a roof spoiler and a wider grille and badge that combine to give the car a bolder, racier look.
The third-generation hatchback, which is Honda's No. 3-selling model in Europe after the Civic and CR-V, shares the same global architecture used to underpin the Civic and the forthcoming HR-V small SUV. The car's wheelbase has grown by 30mm to increase interior space, Honda said.
