Honda Relaunches Jazz LE for 2016
Honda relaunches Jazz Limited Edition in Australia, which offers $3,000 worth of extras for just a slight premium.
The Honda Jazz Limited Edition (LE) was made available to buyers last year, and now almost 12 months later it’s being relaunched by the firm in Australia.
According to Honda, the success experienced by the Jazz Limited Edition in 2015 prompted the relaunch, but the same can’t be said about the Civic, HR-V and CR-V models from last year, which have not returned.
This year, the Jazz LE gets around $3,000 worth of visual and equipment upgrades, yet buyers will only have to shell out an additional $1,000 more than they would on an entry-level Jazz VTi CVT variant – the car on which it’s based.
With a price tag of $19,490 drive-away, the Jazz LE, Honda says, features “a compelling package of sporty and stylish exterior enhancements”.
There’s front fog lamps; a rear roof spoiler; rear parking sensors; a black sports grille and 15-inch alloy wheels.
There’s little change under the bonnet, though, with the Jazz LE utilising the same 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and CVT combo found in other Jazz models, giving it the same output of 88kW and 145Nm.
The Jazz LE still includes Honda’s unique 18-way Magic Seats, which offer no less than 18 different seat-folding configurations for maximum flexibility.
“With the success of the Honda Jazz Limited Edition in 2015, Honda welcomes the return of the 2016 Honda Jazz Limited Edition model,”” Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins, said.
“It offers a range of value-added features for customers without the hefty price tag.”
“The Honda Jazz Limited Edition is very competitive and combined with sensible packaging, a modern interior and really versatile luggage space, is the perfect urban companion.”
As with all Honda passenger vehicles, the Jazz LE comes with a three-year/100,000km warranty. It also boasts a five-star ANCAP safety rating.
