To launch the car Honda is offering the Jazz Si with highly competitive finance offers, such as 3 years 0 per cent PCP with payments of £149 per month with a 27 per cent deposit. The on the road price for the Jazz Si is £14,550.

Built in Honda’s manufacturing facility in Swindon alongside the rest of the Jazz range, the Si is based on the 1.4 ES manual variant, but with additional sports-inspired features. The exterior has been given front and rear sport bumpers and side skirts, as well as 16-inch alloys. The Si also has the addition of privacy glass, front fog lights and Si branding on the boot, to highlight the car’s sportier specification.

To ensure the Jazz Si has substance as well as style, revised suspension settings have been adopted. New dampers are combined with a larger front anti-roll bar to improve straight-line stability and body control. The electric power-steering system has also been modified for improved feel and response.

Along with greater dynamism, the Jazz Si retains the easy-to-drive character, smooth controls, comfortable ride and long-distance refinement of the standard Jazz. The Jazz Si therefore offers the best of all worlds – a small car that can effortlessly cover long distances and is also fun to drive.

The interior has been given the Si treatment too, with a leather-trimmed steering wheel, black and silver supportive seats and the benefit of cruise control. The Jazz Si is available in four colours, to highlight the cars more youthful look; Milano Red, Crystal Black, White Orchid and Azure Blue.

A Si-T version is also available for £15,545 (OTR) and benefits from the addition of SD navigation and integrated Bluetooth.
