There were rumors that Honda would stop production of Jazz in the Asian region. That way there will be no Jazz name anymore. In order to continue to exist, to fill the compact hatchback segment, it is reported that the Honda City Hatchback will be introduced next year.
However, that doesn’t mean the platform of the third-generation Honda Jazz just disappears. The news is getting stronger when the platform will be used by the Honda WR-V 2021.
It is known that the Honda WR-V 2021 is a form of a crossover which is based on the Honda Jazz GK. Having an aggressive appearance as the hallmark of a crossover, and embedded with a variety of interesting features, it’s no wonder his arrival is always eagerly awaited.
