The new look Honda Jazz has been announced and comes with the welcome of a new 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine for the first time in the UK.
The exterior sees a signature solid wing face with new headlights and grille arrangement, plus the new colour option of Skyride Blue.
The 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine outputs 130PS and is Euro6 compliant – according to NEDC data on the combined cycled it should achieve 52.3 mpg with emissions as low as 124 g/km. This engine can be specified with a revised, more responsive CVT transmission.
The new engine/model can be ordered from November 2017 – and is available on the new Dynamic edition, which adds a thinner front splitter beneath the lower grille, and triple-strake diffuser to the rear bumper – both finished with a red accent line. Dynamic models include LED headlights, front fog lamps, side sill skirts, a tailgate spoiler and gloss-black 185/55 R16 alloy wheels. The interior features pinstripe pattern upholstery and a leather steering wheel/gear knob, featuring orange stitching.
The 1.3-litre i-VTEC petrol engine remains in the line-up which does not include a diesel model.
Standard equipment across the Jazz range includes cruise control, automatic headlights and the City-Brake Active safety system. Higher grades feature a 7-inch Honda Connect infotainment system, rear-view parking camera, keyless entry and start, as well as advanced safety technologies such as Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Traffic Sign Recognition.Published 14 August 2017
