The second-generation Jazz was introduced here in August 2008, so now, close to three years on, it’s time for the mid-term facelift to make its appearance. Honda Malaysia has announced the introduction of a jazzier remake of the five-seater, which gets some minor external styling changes, an interior cosmetic makeover as well as improvements to some utility features on this particular rework run.

No revisions to the mechanicals, with the 120 PS L15A 1.5 litre i-VTEC lump and five-speed auto transmission continuing as is, though the car now finally comes with Vehicle Stability Assist strapped on.

The exterior gets new front and rear bumpers, along with a new front mesh grille to to lend the car a sportier appearance. Additionally, the headlights are now accentuated with silver and matte coloured lights, and the entire lighting array is further tweaked with the inclusion of new front fog lights and rear combination lights.

The interior, meanwhile, gets a new colour scheme, with a new blue and black material for the seats and door panels leading the way, and the speedometer and audio displays now feature amber-coloured illumination.

Elsewhere, improvements to utility features – based on customers’ feedback – have come about. This includes a revised locking knob for the inner door handle (with a new orange coloured highlight), new opening sound indicator to the fuel lid as well as an orange marker on the air conditioning control, all to aid better control recognition and function usability.

There’s no change to the pricing – the facelifted Jazz continues to roll at the same RM109,800 price (on-the-road with insurance) as before, in its singular Grade V variant form. Oh, and there’s a new external colour called Brilliant Orange Metallic, which joins Polished Metal Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, and Brilliant White Pearl on the list. Gallery after the jump.
