Jazz Si and Si-T feature lowered suspension, new dampers and larger front anti-roll bars
2 July 2012

Honda has revealed its limited edition Honda Jazz models, the Jazz Si and Jazz Si-T.

Both models get the standard 98bhp 1.4-litre petrol motor and five-speed 'box, but suspension is lowered and includes new dampers and larger front anti-roll bar, whilst power-steering is also modified to compliment the more sporting chassis set-up. Only 1000 examples of each will be produced. 

Cosmetic changes include new bumpers, side skirts, tinted glass, front fog lights, Si badging and 16-inch alloys. Standard equipment on the Si includes cruise control, new black and silver seats, and leather steering wheel, while opting for Si-T adds sat-nav and Bluetooth. Both models are available only in red, black, blue, and white.

The Honda Jazz Si costs £14,550, while the Si-T is priced from £15,545.

Our Verdict

Honda Jazz

The Honda Jazz is a super-practical supermini that’s a doddle to drive and own, but lacking in excitement

Lol, there's a letter missing there surely Wink

I'm sorry but I can't take a sporty Jazz seriously. It's like seeing my grandad wearing Nike Air Max (or whatever the yoof wear these days).

I am a honda fan but I have to agree! I think it should come with a nodding dog on the parcel shelf sporting a turned around baseball cap.

Yo grandma you want them Cliff Richard tunes in MP3 or whaaat!

I'm not sure that side skirts are ever a good idea on a Jazz. The Sport version of the first generation model had them as standard, and they just don't look right to me.

And I wonder what the sport suspension will do to the Jazz's often criticised ride quality.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Jazz is a cracking little car, but I can't see sporty trim going down well with the client base for this car.

Sportier? Maybe.

Sporty? No.

Its a shame Honda cant be bothered to do a proper sporty Jazz if they are going to do one at all, although i agree with everyone else, with the UK customer base a sporty Jazz seems completely pointless

This is just silly. A jazz is a very clever car, but it is a functional holdall. To make it sporty you would need to section it to make the roof lower, extend the bonnet, dump those silly front quarter windows.Double wishbone suspension all round would help too. Not going to happen.

not sure how sporty a can can be considered if it is being outpaced by a london bus (pic 1) or in fact by the whole of covent garden market (pic 2).

Honda UK are so frustrating.

Bring out the 1.5 117BHP engine from JDM/USDM. That would actually be a nice warm hatch. The jazz is a great car but no power.

If they really want to sell to a niche they should bring the 1.5 over with the 4WD Japan only option for a Subaru Justy style niche! They would sell pretty well I think.
