Honda has released a racy, limited edition of its much loved supermini, the Jazz. The new Swindon-built Jazz Si is based on the 1.4 ES manual variant, but boasts additional sports-inspired features.
The exterior gets new front and rear sport bumpers and side skirts, as well as 16in alloys. The Si also has the addition of privacy glass, front fog lights and Si branding on the boot, to highlight the car’s sportier specification.
The Si also benefits from revised suspension settings, and new dampers are combined with a larger front anti-roll bar to improve straight-line stability and body control.
The electric power-steering system has also been modified for improved feel and response.
The cabin also gets the Si treatment. There’s a leather-trimmed steering wheel, black and silver supportive seats and the benefit of cruise control.
The Jazz Si is available in four colours, all aimed at highlighting the car’s more youthful look; Milano Red, Crystal Black, White Orchid and Azure Blue.
The new Jazz Si costs £14,550. An Si-T version, which benefits from SD navigation and integrated Bluetooth, is also available for £15,545.
