Honda recently unveiled the updated 2018 Honda Jazz in the international market. Now reports have surfaced that this third generation hatch back will soon be introduced with a ‘Hybrid’ badge.

 The manufacturer recently added a hybrid variant to the Jazz line up which sits just below the top ‘V’ trim. The 2018 Honda Jazz sources its power from an i-VTEC 1.5-litre engine which produces 107bhp. The hybrid variant, on the other hand, gets an added electric motor and produces a combined power output of 167bhp. The new vehicle gets a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

 

The 2018 Honda Jazz, globally known as the Honda Fit, also underwent cosmetic tweaks and the manufacturer has updated the safety feature by offering the ‘Honda-sensing’ technology. A sport trim with unique styling features is another new addition to this line-up.

The 2018 Honda Jazz is expected to hit the Indian soil early next year. However, it is highly unlikely that the Honda jazz will introduce a hybrid trim for India. Nevertheless, the manufacturers will adopt its cosmetic changes and offer the new Jazz with a drivetrain similar to the current one. The manufacturer is expected to showcase the new hatch in the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo and when launched, it will continue its fight against Hyundai Elite i20 and Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
