Honda New Zealand Introduces the New 2018 Jazz
The new look 2018 Honda Jazz has arrived with fresh new sportier exterior styling and interior trim. The new Jazz is available with 73kW 1.3 litre Atkinson Cycle & 97kW 1.5 litre Direct Injection engines with a choice of a 6 Speed Manual or CVT transmission. Both responsive and efficient powertrains benefit from Honda's Earth Dreams Technology.
 
Exterior changes align the Jazz with the latest Honda styling, incorporating the ‘Solid Wing Face’, new headlight signature and grille. The front bumper is sharply sculpted, with distinctive contours around the air vents. At the rear, the shallower grille sections are linked by a gloss black trim above a trapezoid lower section. Updates to the exterior are rounded off by the addition of four new colours to the range - a striking Rouge Amethyst Metallic, Shining Grey Metallic, Midnight Blue Metallic and Premium Agate Brown Pearl.

The driving dynamics have been improved across the range with a focus on delivering a fun, engaging driving experience. The cabin noise has been reduced with a combination of thicker steel, increased sound insulation and injection system revisions. Comfort and control have increased with chassis, rigidity and damper refinements. Convenience and safety are improved with the 7" Honda Display Audio, 3 Angle Reversing Camera with dynamic guidelines, Parking Sensor Indicators and Distance Warning System becoming standard on all models.
 
The RS models take the attitude even further with a new front splitter and rear diffuser with red detailing attached to the new design aero bumpers. Fresh gloss black wheels and detailing with the new design Bi-LED headlights and DRLs finish off the new look.
 
Underneath the RS retains its sporty Honda DNA with uprated RS sports suspension, quicker ratio steering, and either a slick shifting 6 speed manual, or 7 speed CVT with clever G Design shift.
 
Sporty and safe, semi-autonomous braking in the form of City Brake Assist is standard across the RS models.
 
The new Honda Jazz retains its exceptional versatility with Honda’s Magic Seats, boot space of 363 litres with up to 1323 litres with the rear seats folded down and passenger space that is unrivalled in its class. Honda’s highly practical 60:40 split Magic Seat System allows for 18 different cargo configurations, with a maximum interior loading length of 2.4m and maximum loading height of 1.2m. 
 
The new 2018 Jazz is packed with features, technology and space that you wouldn’t expect from a small car. With a 5 year, fully transferrable, unlimited Km Warranty & Roadside Assistance included, the new Jazz is a winner all round.
