The new fresh looking Honda Jazz has just been revealed ahead of the major European motor show in Frankfurt towards the end of September.
As well as interior and exterior styling tweaks, the new Jazz will also be available with a 130ps 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol engine for the very first time in Europe.
The New 2018 Honda Jazz
The exterior changes to the new Jazz are in-line with the rest of the Honda family like the new Civic launched recently, featuring the solid front wing face with signature headlights and grille. The front bumper is like the civic with sharper and more aggressive lines around the vents.
The rear bumper has also had some minor design changes with a high gloss, black trim and smaller grille sections on either side. New for 2018 is also a fresh paint colour in the form of Skyride Blue.
The new powerful 1.5 litre engine will be only available as part of the new Dynamic trim level, Which adds a range of sporty exterior trims also. At the front is a thinner front splitter beneath the lower grille and at the rear is a triple strake diffuser, both are finished in a sporty red colour.
If you do choose the Dynamic grade, a whole range of standard equipment comes part of the package, LED headlights, front fog lamps, side sill skirts, tailgate spoiler, and gloss black 16 inch alloys.
On the inside of the dynamic range, the interior upholstery has a unique pinstripe pattern, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear lever, which are both stitched with an eye catching orange thread.
The same interior versatility continues on from the current model with a 354 litre boot and up to 897 litres of space with the rear seats folded down. The passenger space remains unrivalled for a car of its size and with Honda’s Magic seat system the 60-40 split provides multiple cargo carrying configurations.
Standard equipment on any new 2018 Jazz includes the City-Brake Active safety system (to save you from low speed collisions) and cruise control. Higher up the line trim levels include the 7 inch touch screen Honda Connect infotainment system, rear view parking camera, keyless entry and start alongside other safety orientated systems like collision warning, lane departure and traffic sign recognition.
A 100bhp 1.3 i-VTEC petrol engine will available across the range. The optional automatic CVT transmission can be added to the 1.3 litre and the 1.5 litre with new revisions that deliver a more refined response under acceleration.
Expect to see the new 2018 Honda Jazz displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show from September 16th through to the 24th, also rumoured to appear is the long awaited CR-V hybrid. Order books are open in November with the very first cars coming through early 2018.
