Honda Jazz facelift comes with new 1.5-litre petrol

Honda has revamped its range of Jazz with visual updates and a new 1.5-liter gasoline engine.

On display at the Frankfurt motor show, the five-door hatchback gets a sharp exterior more in line with Honda’s latest design language, as well as a spruced up interior.

Comes with cruise control, automatic headlamps and emergency city braking technology. Most models get a 7in infotainment system, rear view parking camera, keyless entry and start, as well as driver aids such as front collision warning, lane departure warning and recognition of traffic signs.

The european buyers also will offer Honda’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder i-Vtec engine for the first time, with claims that it is good for 52.3 mpg, with a 128bhp output.

The new unit is added to the existing 1.3-litre petrol option. Both engines are available along with a six-speed manual gearbox or CVT transmission.

The order of the books of the update of the Jazz open in November, with prices expected to remain close to the exit of the version £13,995 opener. The first deliveries are due in early 2018.
