Honda Jazz X 01

The second of the limited-run X Edition models introduced by Honda Malaysia yesterday is the Jazz X, which gets the same treatment as seen on the City X sedan.

New half-leather upholstery with embossed X badging on the front seats are to be found, as is a special trunk tray with unmissable X Edition marking and daytime running lights. A small X Edition badge on the rear lid finishes off the additional bits, so no one will mistake the variant for a normal mid-spec grade E version, which the X is based on.

Like the City, the Jazz is powered by a 1.5 litre SOHC i-VTEC engine, with output figures being identical (120 PS at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm at 4,600 rpm), and the unit is mated to an Earth Dreams Technology continuously variable transmission.

The Jazz X is priced at RM82,500 on-the-road with insurance, which is RM1,500 more than the regular grade E Jazz. As is the case with the City X, the Jazz X only gets two colour choices – Modern Steel Metallic and Carnival Red, which was introduced for the car earlier this year. Production of the Jazz X will be limited to only 300 examples.
