2022 Honda City Hatchback Is Coming Soon To Replace The Jazz

· Automotive News

Honda Malaysia has posted a teaser on its social media, and it’s for the Honda City Hatchback, surprise!!!! The new model is fully shown with the caption that says “ Move aside. Y? Because This. Is. It”. Toyota used “Life needs a Y” for the Yaris launch – go figure.

In case you didn’t realise, the latest fifth-generation City has a five-door hatchback sibling, which is effectively the replacement for the third-gen Jazz in our region. This B-segment hatchback is expected to have the same powertrains as the City sedan, and will go head-to-head with the Toyota Yaris, which is of course the hatchback sister of the Vios.

The City Hatchback is essentially the sedan without a boot. At 4,345 mm long (4,349 mm with RS bumpers), it’s 208 mm shorter than the sedan, while the 1,488 mm height is up 21 mm. No difference in width and wheelbase, which remain at 1,748 mm and 2,589 mm respectively. Compared to the outgoing Jazz, the City Hatch is longer and wider, but less tall. The Jazz’s wheelbase is 59 mm shorter.
