The Honda Jazz has a new petrol engine and an updated exterior. The rejuvenated model will appear at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

It will be the first time that the 1.5-litre 130hp petrol engine has been available in Europe. Honda is claiming a 52.3mpg fuel economy and 124g/km CO2 emissions with the optional CVT automatic transmission.

Facelifted front and rear bumpers with signature headlights and grille align the Jazz with the latest models in the Honda family. A new Sport specification is on offer, as well as new colour option: Metallic Skyride Blue.

Inside, the Jazz continues to be a class-leader in terms of space with a 354-litre boot that can be expanded to 897 litres with the rear seats folded and roomy surroundings for occupants.

The Jazz features cruise control, automatic headlights and City-Brake Active safety system as standard. Optional extras include a seven-inch Honda Connect infotainment system, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition.

After its Frankfurt appearance, the updated Honda Jazz will be available to order in November, with first deliveries expected to be made early next year.
