Honda recently introduced the third generation of their Jazz. And now the 2018 hatchback is being offered with a new trim and an updated safety system. The manufacturer has added a hybrid variant to the Jazz line-up which sits just below the top ‘V’ trim.
The 2018 Honda Jazz sources its power from an i-VTEC 1.5-litre engine which produces 107bhp. The hybrid variant, on the other hand, gets an added electric motor and produces a combined power output of 167bhp. The new vehicle gets a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
The 2018 Honda Jazz, globally known as the Honda Fit, also underwent cosmetic tweaks and the manufacturer has updated the safety feature by offering the ‘Honda-sensing’ technology. A sport trim with unique styling features is another new addition to this line-up.
The 2018 Honda Jazz is expected to hit the Indian soil early next year. However, it is highly unlikely that the Honda jazz will introduce a hybrid trim for India. Nevertheless, the manufacturers will adopt its cosmetic changes and offer the new Jazz with a drivetrain similar to the current one.
