Honda has upgraded one of its most popular global models, the Jazz. The mid-size hatchback is headed for its Frankfurt Motor Show debut with its refreshed looks for 2017.

In terms of updates, Honda has revised the exterior and interior styling giving the Jazz a new 130bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine for the first time in Europe. Starting off with the exterior updates, the changes align with the latest Honda global design language, incorporating the 'Solid Wing Face' headlight element and the grille. The bumper has also been updated with more aggressive contours around the air vents and the rear. The grille sections are shallower and linked by a gloss black trim strip above a trapezoid lower section. Furthermore, a metallic Skyride Blue is added as a new colour option.

The 130bhp petrol engine is offered as part of a new Dynamic trim, which adds a thinner front splitter beneath the lower grille and triple-strake diffuser to the rear bumper, both finished with a red accent line. The dynamic trim also includes LED headlights, front fog lamps, side sill skirts, a tailgate spoiler and 16-inch gloss-black alloy wheels. The interiors feature a pinstripe pattern on the upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, all of which are enhanced by orange stitch lines.

The new 1.5-litre motor complies with stringent Euro 6 emission standards and gets an optional CVT automatic transmission. The CVT system itself has been revised to deliver a more linear and refined response under acceleration. Honda is also offering the standard 100bhp 1.3-litre petrol motor in the new Jazz range which will commence sales in November across Europe.
