The Honda Jazz has proven to be a bestseller for the Japanese carmaker ever since it debuted in 2001. Now, Honda has just pulled the covers off the fourth-generation model at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.

“We developed this vehicle not merely as a means of transportation for our customers. We strived for a vehicle which will become a part of our customers’ daily lives and make their daily lives more comfortable and enjoyable,” says Honda president, representative director, and CEO Takahiro Hachigo. “This is a compact car for the new era, and this vehicle will set a new standard for Honda automobile development.”

The all-new hatchback comes in five variants in Japan. Click play on the video above and check out the photos below for a closer look.

This is marketed as the, erm, luxurious variant in the lineup. It’s chrome-plated, giving it a shiny look, while the multi-spoked aluminum wheels give it a classy touch. The grille here is also a bit different—the big black bar somewhat resembles the grille of the current CR-V and Civic. Inside, it comes with leather seats.
