Leaked brochure shots show Shuttle name to return on practical Honda Jazz estate.
Honda has put the boot into the Jazz – and these grainy brochure shots, leaked from Japan, show the practical new estate model is ready to take the fight to supermini-based load carriers such as Skoda’s Fabia and the Renault Clio.
The Jazz estate gets the same tweaked styling as the imminent facelifted hatch, plus a raised roofline and extended body. Bosses have resurrected the Shuttle badge for the car.
These enhancements mean there will be even more space for rear passengers, as well as a significantly larger boot than the 399 litres of the current Jazz hatchback.
Engines are reportedly set to be carried over from the current line-up, so expect to see 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre powerplants with 89bhp and 99bhp respectively. The 1.3-litre IMA hybrid system – which features in the new petrol-electric Jazz, as well as Honda’s Insight – is also likely to be offered. This should give 102bhp. There’s no word about an on-sale date, but the estate would fit nicely into the range.
