The 2018 Honda Jazz unveiled was revealed before the opening of the order in November 2017. To make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month, the changes are not limited to a visual upgrade – Honda has introduced a new high – powered gasoline engine option.
What we have here is the 2018 honda Jazz RS model with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a high-end hatchback. In addition, the RS logo adds a bit more sportiness to the Honda hatchback by giving it unique front and rear bumpers, a larger rear wing and good doses of shiny black trim. He also gets a set of black alloy wheels. The slight pinch and fold reinforces the already beautiful exterior of the Jazz. The headlights have been tweaked for a more aggressive look while the LED daytime running lights are now connected to the chrome strip on the grill. The new conservative design goes inside but it’s not a bad thing. This means that you get the same ergonomic layout as in the Jazz pre-facelift. It always looks fresh and contemporary since the car has been around for three years now. There are still plenty of storage pockets in the Jazz and a smart cup holder right next to the air conditioning vent. Each switch and button is logically placed directly in the line of sight. The updated version of Jazz retains the ULT flexible seats, which is very handy when you need to carry larger items.
In the form of 2018 Honda Jazz RS, the Jazz gets a unique set of seats that come with orange contrast stitching and special graphics. There is also an orange seam on the steering wheel and more of this color can be found on the door panels. This combination, with large windows, lets in more light into the cabin and increases the feeling of space. In addition, the Jazz RS comes with a redesigned infotainment system that comes with more features. Aside from the usual bluetooth, auxiliary and navigation, the system allows Internet connections and allows you to browse the Internet (as long as you do not violate the laws) inside the car. This new infotainment screen is also used in VX models. A pair of tweeters is also available as standard on the RS, which has improved the sound quality. Like the outside, these are minor improvements for the interior.
While the 1.3-liter, 100-hp i-VTEC petrol engine is retained for all models, the Sport models feature a 1.5-liter, 128-hp petrol engine. Honda has not yet released the performance figures, but it confirms the economy of 52.3 mpg and 124 g / km of CO2 emissions. The American version of the Jazz, the Honda Fit, claims 0 to 100 km / h in about 8.5 seconds, so we estimate less than 9.0 seconds the European standard 0-62 mph.
Prices for the new 2018 Honda Jazz will be confirmed closer to the opening of the order in November: deliveries are expected to begin in early 2018.
