The biggest highlight here is that the 2020 Honda Jazz facelift will employ LED headlamps. Other than this, it will also feature a revised grille, which is inspired by the international-spec Honda Fit.

Inside, the 2020 Honda Jazz will feature an updated 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility along with new fabric for the seat upholstery.
The most significant update will be made under the hood of the car. The upcoming hatchback will get its juice from BS6-compliant 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel powertrains. The BS4 petrol engine puts out 90bhp and 110Nm of peak torque, while the BS4 diesel mill offers 100bhp of peak power and 200 Nm of peak torque. We expect the power figures to remain unchanged. The petrol variant will be available with 5-speed manual and CVT options, while the diesel variant will be sold with a 6-speed manaul transmission.
