The basic shape of the 2014 Honda Jazz remains unchanged: it still looks like a small minivan, but its styling is sharper, and the interior is also redesigned. The front grille with the black ‘moustache’ shape looks familiar from other Hondas. From the back, the 2014 Honda Jazz faintly resembles Volvo’s crossovers.

The interior of the 2014 Honda Jazz is changed completely, looking very trendy with its hard lines and geometrical shapes. Also there are a number of technology features like full-touchscreen controls on the center console.

However, Honda Jazz customers loved this small car not because some design feats, but thanks to the very functional and spacious interior; it remains to be seen whether the 2014 Honda Jazz will be as practical as its older versions.

The 2014 Honda Jazz will be launched in September. The base model will have a 1.3-liter engine delivering 100PS (99hp). Also there will be a 1.5-liter engine producing 132PS (130hp) and a hybrid version fitted with a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle (high expansion ratio cycle) engine.

The hybrid version of the 2014 Honda Jazz will be packed with interesting technology. This is the first Honda to be equipped with the new Sport Hybrid Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD) system. This system has three driving modes: a full electric EV Drive Mode, a Hybrid Drive Mode where the electric motor and the engine works in parallel, and an Engine Drive Mode. According to the manufacturer, this system helps improve the fuel economy of the 2014 Honda Jazz by 35 percent.
