The tweaked version of the Jazz has been given a new lease of life. The model will be better equipped than ever, also receiving enhancements to its looks and driving dynamics. The model is expected to arrive on February 1st in the UK, sporting a list price starting from £11,295 ($17,575) for the 1.2 S model and £15,995 ($24,889) for the Hybrid variant in HE trim.

The Jazz has a more modern appearance, thanks to new front and rear bumpers. The car is not all looks and no go, as the new body parts have been designed to deduce drag as the air passes over the Jazz’s body and to avoid turbulence when the airflow detaches from the rear. All the small aerodynamic improvements add up, helping the Cd figure to fall from 0.336 to 0.330.

Due to strong customer demand, Honda has decided to reintroduce its popular constantly variable transmission, more commonly known as ‘CVT’. The gearbox keeps the engine in the rev range where it is most efficient, also offering the driver a smooth and effortless journey. The CVT comes as an option on most models, but is standard on the Jazz Hybrid version. The CVT also manages to lower emissions, the 1.4-liter petrol engine only producing 125g/km of CO2 when coupled with it.

For the very first time, the Jazz can be ordered with leather seats. When coupled with the addition of chrome rings defining the air vents, instruments and climate controls across the dashboard, the leather trim gives a whole new premium feeling to the interior.

The suspension on the 2011 Jazz features revised settings to increase ride comfort and improve handling. The model also has improved steering feel at higher speeds in order to inspire a bit of driving confidence. Honda has also introduced four new colors across the Jazz’s petrol range: Azure Blue, Polished Metal, Urban Titanium and Ionized Bronze.
