New Jazz in tune for
HONDA revealed its new-look Jazz at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show and the newcomer will be in UK showrooms in February with a starting price of Â£14,115 and a Sports edition topping the range at Â£17,155.
The 102bhp 1.3 i-VTEC engine range powers the entry-level S model and specifications are generous across the line up with base-grade the S models fitted as standard with features such as air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter and dusk sensing automatic lights.
The mid-grade SE model, priced from £15,615, adds front and rear parking sensors, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors and 15-in alloy wheels.
Those opting for the top-grade EX model priced from £17,115 will gain smart entry and start, automatic climate control and reversing camera.
Styling is enhanced with 16-inch alloy wheels and front fog lamps, while LED headlights are now standard addition on the EX.
New to the line-up is the Jazz Sport which features a 130bhp 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine.
Based on the SE grade the Sport features a thinner front splitter beneath the lower grille, and triple-strake diffuser to the rear bumper - both finished with a sporty red accent line similar to the Civic Type R, LED headlights, front fog lamps, side sill skirts, a tailgate spoiler and gloss-black 16-inch alloy wheels.
The interior features a pinstripe pattern on the upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, all of which are enhanced by orange stitching.
Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK, said: "The Jazz is our best-selling car in the UK and has been rejuvenated with the new Sport model, as well as the new interior and exterior styling. The Jazz is a very important model for us, with an extremely loyal following, so we look forward to seeing this success continue with the new line up and the addition of the Sport model."
