Honda has embraced the ‘Yoo no bi’ philosophy, recognizing the beauty existing in everyday items for its new Jazz.
The next generation Honda Jazz, which will be available in Europe from summer 2020, will continue to benefit from clever packaging to make it a practical compact car.
Yoo no bi applies both to inside and outside, with the interior designed to be clean and minimalist, with everything being practical and functional in a simple and uncluttered way.
The interior uses durable materials such as water-repellent fabric and contemporary, soft-touch dashboard materials.
The dashboard incorporates a slim instrument panel sweeping horizontally across the cabin, which, according to Honda, means no visor effect restricting the field of vision, enhancing the sense of spaciousness.
The Japanese car manufacturer says the central HMI 9in touchscreen and 7in full TFT instrument cluster are simple and easy to read.
It adds that all convenience features and controls are easy to reach and use, contributing to a stress-free driving experience.
Honda also says that halved pillar thickness enhances the sense of airiness for all occupants.
Designer Baek Jongkuk said, “I wanted to create a car which was a ‘kind companion’ for the owner, while maximizing its usability. I did this by minimizing unnecessary features and simplifying exterior lines to deliver a car which features a friendly, fresh appearance, complete with a comfortable and practical interior.”
