2024 Honda Jazz: Facelift is Coming!

The popular nameplate has been in use for more than two decades and it established itself as one of the best models in the so-called B segment, offering excellent value for money. The current generation is no exception and actually feels like the best Jazz we’ve seen so far. It’s been around since 2020 and it looks like Honda is already preparing some updates, to make it even better. Allegedly, the 2024 Honda Jazz is about to receive a mid-cycle update.

This update would bring all kinds of updates, as the changes have already been confirmed for the Japanese domestic market, where this car is known as Fit. The list of changes would include different things, including styling tweaks, while there is also a good chance to see some novelties under the hood.

These changes indicate a little bit earlier arrival than usual, so we might see it already in the third quarter of the year.

So, what we expect to see is a typical mid-cycle update. At this point, the officials are still keeping details a secret but rumors, on the other hand, suggest mostly subtle changes. This makes a lot of sense if we consider that the current model is still pretty fresh. So, the best we could see are minor updates, such as a few tweaks to the front end, where we could see new headlights, grille, bumper etc. Still, we don’t expect t see any drastic change, so the overall appearance will remain familiar. Of course, there is always room for typical mid-cycle updates, such as new wheels, color options and similar things.

In terms of mechanics, we don’t expect to see any bigger changes. Simply, the current model already offers a well-balanced chassis and suspension setup, which offers good comfort and engaging handling at the same time. We also like the brakes, as they are pretty good for this segment.


We already mentioned that this generation has been around for no more than a couple of years and, therefore, we don’t believe that the next year’s model could bring bigger changes to the inside. Instead, we expect to see a familiar layout, which looks pretty attractive. It features nice materials, while the build quality is, typically for Honda, very good. Furthermore, the dashboard looks nice, and the sound insulation is pretty good as well. Finally, the cabin comes equipped with all kinds of tech and convenience features, including things like a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, 9-inch infotainment screen etc.

Thanks to the hatchback body style, the Jazz offers a lot of space on the inside, despite the modest exterior dimensions. The front seats are well-shaped and quite spacious, while the second row also offers enough room to accommodate adults.

2024 Honda Jazz Engine

Unlike Fit, which comes with various powertrain options, the 2024 Honda Jazz will most likely continue with just one powertrain option on offer. Of course, we are talking about the hybrid system, which is based on a 1.5-lite four-cylinder. The system combines petrol and electric power in such a nice fashion where, in urban conditions, the wheels are powered mostly by an electric motor, while the engine engages only under heavy acceleration and at higher speeds. As a result, the average fuel economy goes a little bit over 4L/100km, which is great for the segment.

From what we can rear in the unofficial reports, it looks the system could be updated. The current version puts out 109 horsepower and with the upcoming update, the combined output would go up to 127 horsepower. Of course, the engine would continue in pair with a CVT.

Honda Jazz RS

Another possible novelty of the upcoming refresh would be a performance version of the car. Namely, the company already announced the Fit RS, which will be offered in Japan. So, we might see Honda Jazz RS as well, That model would come with similar kinds of upgrades, such as a new grille design with a mesh pattern, sporty bumper with large air intakes, deeper side sills, new alloy wheels, rear roof spoiler and many more.

On the insider, this model would come with exclusive steering wheel stitching, a new drive mode selector and similar things. Details about the suspension upgrades are still unavailable, while the powertrain would probably remain the same as in base models.

2024 Honda Jazz Release Date

We presume that the 2024 Honda Jazz would arrive a little bit earlier than usual, due to the expected mid-cycle refresh. Still, we don’t expect that the launch date could be scheduled before the third quarter of the year.
