The new Japanese light car is still available in three options: an entry-level Honda Jazz VTi, a mid-spec VTi-S and a top-spec VTi-L. These three variants are all equipped with a 1.5L naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine giving 118 hp and 145 Nm of peak torque as the outgoing model. However, a 5-speed manual transmission is only present on the VTi whereas a CVT transmission is exclusive to the VTi-S and VTi-L grades. Particularly, the range-topping model comes standard with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
