    Technically they usually increase by a millimeters or inches at the most. The huge change is volume. The larger panels used in the newer models make it look bigger but it's actually more space (for various other electronics to also take up by the way).

    I mean for one my 300D (w123) is a few millimeters longer than our 300TE (w124) but the use of larger panels made enough room for more stuff and also made it more aerodynamic. Just an example of course.

    2 reasons, to add more space and at the same time comply with new safety regulations.
    The new Mini for example is a global car, so it has to pass all requirements.
    The latest model even has a slightly higher and longer hood because of the new European pedestrian collision regulations.
    Of course at the end, the Mini gets a 5 star safety rating at the EURONCAP.

    Actually, the Jazz is as big as the the old EF Civics already, with more headroom. It's supposedly as big as the 80's Accord, but it's been so long that I can't rightly tell.

    hmmm...
    don't like.
    prefer the current.
    the shape seems nice.
    but the headlamps seem to big.
    looks kinda like the colt.

    i still like the face-lifted picanto.
    (ot. sorry. hehehe)

    Totoo bang 2009 pa yan? A friend of mine is planning to buy a Jazz, he doesnt know whether he should wait for the new one or settle for the current one right now. Time is the only issue he's worrying about :D What do you guys think?

    I hope the 2008 Honda City will also look the same at the front.

    2009 is nearly sure.

    Honda can't release more than 2 cars a year. Their schedule goes:
    2006 - Civic
    2007 - CR-V
    2008 - Accord
    2009 - Jazz

    If the local Honda office has the good sense to reverse the order between the Accord and the Jazz, I'll be happy, but the Accord launch is already in the pipeline, and I don't think they can change it that easily.
