Honda Jazz RS may be showcased at Auto Expo 2016

TOKYO: Honda Jazz, which was launched in India in July, 2015, is all set to add another variant to its line-up. The RS, much like the Mobilio RS, is primarily a body-kit that not only adds to the car’s style quotient, but also offers additional equipment. Honda is expected to showcase the Jazz RS at the Delhi Auto Expo in February, and may also receive a more powerful engine as compared to the one that powers the regular model of the hatchback.
Talking about the upgrades, the Honda Jazz RS is expected to feature a glossy black front grille with dark chrome plating and the ‘RS’ badge, LED head-lamps with automatic leveling, and chrome door handles. At the rear, it may get a RS exclusive tailgate spoiler, dark chrome garnish for the license plate, a spoiler-mounted LED stop lamp, etc. Expect the carmaker to also add new 15″ alloy wheels to the mix.
Further provisions on the Honda Jazz RS may include an engine start-stop button, 6.2″ touchscreen Audio Visual Navigation system, cruise control, etc.
As far as engine options go, much like the Mobilio RS, the Honda Jazz RS is also expected to be offered with the diesel engine. The 1.5-litre 4-cylinder, DOHC i-DTEC unit puts out 98.63bhp along with 200Nm of maximum torque and its mileage is rated at 27.3Km/l.
Currently on the sale in Indonesia, the Honda Jazz RS will be launched in India this year and will be a little bit more expensive as compared to the regular model.
