Jazz Si designed with the younger buyer in mind
Matt Burt
26 March 2010

The Honda Jazz Si will be launched next month, in a bid to attract younger drivers.

The Si trim level will be available across the Jazz range, and has enhanced looks and extra features.

Changes include16-inch alloys, a chrome sport grille and a rear spoiler. The interior gets embroidered carpets and Si badges.

Honda says the design was created following customer feedback.

On sale from the 1st April, the Si will prove a strong seller, especially for younger generations and combines low emissions and excellent fuel economy with sporty good looks.

The Si grade is priced at £870 over the 1.2 SE and 1.4 ES models, but Honda says it offers nearly £2000 worth of extra equipment.

Our Verdict

Honda Jazz

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

Sporty styling? Really? With a car that tall, and essentially one line up from the front bumper to the roof?

Anyway, a youthful Honda Jazz is much the same sort of thing as a cheap Bugatti Veyron.

I know for a fact that, of its kind, the Jazz is an excellent car. But youthful (or sporty) it ain't.

And the older one was prettier by a long way.

"combines low emissions and excellent fuel economy" So why no Jazz in the £35 tax bracket? As an under 40 (youthful for a Jazz customer!!) looking at a new supermini, it amazes me that any Toyota Yaris and a vast array of petrol and diesel models in other ranges can achieve this saving, but Honda can't.

Good point.


always thought the omission of a larger engine (don't they use a 1.5 in Japan?) was due to the fact it would probably steal sales from the Civic - suppose it depends on the emissions as well, as Si70 says, they aren't so hot.

A 1.6 Jazz with about 130bhp though? That would make an excellent all round small car!

i think its a good idea! but i dont think it will appeal to many young buyers however its good that it is getting some more power! granny will get to tescos quicker

I'm trying really hard not be trite here but I just can't resist...

A youthful Honda Jazz? That's an oxymoron.

So sorry.... :-/

The first time i went in a Jazz, the old one, i was amazed at how funky it was for an OAP Mobile.

But no young person bothered about image is going to buy a Jazz, bigger alloys or not. which is unfortunate because they really are a good car - almost exclusively driven by pensioners.

The Jazz is the car i describe as being the slowest car in the world. Not because they cant go fast, but because they are the car at the front of the tailback too often.

i urge anyone with the time and money to pimp one up! i think it would be quite interesting! i actually quite like the Jazz i'm ashamed to say! its a bit like listening to radio 2! not cool but silently like it!
