Nothing says Hot Hatch quite like a Honda Jazz Sport
The arrival of a New Year is accompanied by the hope of something better. Honda’s new Jazz Sport is not just better, it may just be the best version of the ultra-popular hatchback yet. The standard Jazz is a fan favourite, and not without reason. It has a great set of specs, a handy Magic Seat system, noteworthy fuel economy and the obvious pleasure of Honda’s after-sale services. 2018 has brought us a few great enhancements to the Jazz range, with the spotlight on the Sports model for its bold new look.
The Jazz range has been fitted with the essential features to ensure quality drive irrespective of the model type.
The entry, middle and high spec vehicles have all received some fresh changes, boosting the Jazz series overall. The entry-level Jazz comes with a 1.3 i-VTEC engine and includes a range of specs for your comfort and safety including a multi-information display infotainment system, Magic seat system, electric side mirrors, Anti-lock Braking System and the SRS airbag system. The higher spec 1.5 Elegance now includes auto-retractable side mirrors with an integrated indicator as well as 15-inch alloy wheels and luxurious interior detailing with the leather steering and gearshift knob. The highest spec Sport variant features further enhancements that come standard with the car. These include keyless and Smart Entry Push-button start technology, a reverse-park camera, front fog lamps, LED lights and 16-inch alloy wheels. Honda has also added a new colour option to the fleet, introducing Skyride Blue Metallic to the range.
In addition to the above, higher spec models are equipped with an upgraded 7-inch Honda infotainment system and various safety features including day-time running lights and rear parking sensors.
The Honda Jazz Sport is also kitted out with a range of exterior upgrades. The front splinter has been made thinner and the grille has been lowered. The Jazz Sport also includes side sill skirts and a tailgate spoiler that is complemented by red accents. Its interior is comfortable and modern with red stitch edging and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Its main talking point, of course, is its 155 Nm and 97Kw producing 1.5 i-VTEC engine, powering the car through the New Year.
The new Honda Jazz Sport 2018 has made its way to South Africa in February 2018 and has been spotted across the country.
