The Honda Jazz 2018 edition was scheduled for a full reveal at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show this year.
The automobile brand has decided to bring it to their fans much earlier giving us a sneak peak of what to expect from the new Jazz.
A range of style tweaks can instantly be spotted in the car while some of them are subtle or hidden. On the whole, the changes provide an improved look for the model. The changes range from a stylish exterior, revamped interior trim to a more potent petrol engine that provides improved horsepower making the car more faster than the outgoing model. While it doesn’t belong to the performance category, the mild tweak plays a huge role in making it fun to drive.
The subtle style changes can be spotted in the new front grille which ends in the curved headlights and it also sports redesigned lighting signatures. The size of the grille on the rear bumper has been considerably reduced to give a sleek appearance to the model combined with glossy black strips. While all the old colors are still available for the new 2018 Honda Jazz facelift edition, a new color choice known as the metallic blue hue has been added to the lineup.
The Jazz is often promoted as a family car which Honda wants to change and they are doing so by launching the Dynamic trim level. It provides a much sportier finish to the car by improving it with a front splitter, rear diffuser. The choice of colors on these components are brilliant as the designers have used contrasting red accents on them. The new trim level comprises of front fog lamps, hatch lid spoiler, side skirts and a large 16-inch alloy wheels with gloss black finish. They include LED headlights as part of the package.
Majority of the tweaks and style quotient found in the new Jazz is limited to the exterior of the car. The interior cabin remains pretty much the same with some minor changes. The Dynamic trimline gets an orange stripe that runs on the seats and it has been contrasted with orange threads used to stitch the corners. The leather trimming is used both on the gear knob and the steering wheel for improved comfort on long drives.
Under the bonnet, a brand new 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine has been used which produces about 128 horsepower. The Dynamic variant uses a more potent engine connected to a six-speed manual gearbox while buyers can upgrade it to CVT automatic if they choose to. Delivers will commence in 2018, confirmed Honda.
