Check Out the 2015 Honda Jazz
Honda is previewing the next-generation 2015 Jazz with some new photos, although the car won’t have its official unveiling until early next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The Jazz is essentially just the European version of what we Americans call the Honda Fit, and this one doesn’t look too different from previous Jazzes.
However, Honda says that the bodyshell is all-new and 15mm longer than last year’s Jazz. The wheelbase has also grown by 30mm, moving the axles closer to both ends of the hatchback. All of this expansion, of course, is done in the name of making this supermini feel a bit roomier on the inside.

Along those lines, Honda’s Magic Seats – which flip up like a seat in a ballpark or movie theatre for extra storage space – are again present, thanks to a centrally located fuel tank that frees up some space.
The 2015 Jazz features a new 1.3-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine that comes equipped with Earth Dreams Technology (that’s what it’s really called, we swear to God) to provide greater efficiency. The Jazz will be available as a six-speed manual or a CVT automatic.
Details on fuel economy and horsepower will probably not be revealed until October, when the Paris Motor Show gets underway.
