Mugen Wants A Sporty Version Of The Honda Jazz – rpmGo.com

I never was a big fan of the Honda Jazz and a sporty version is not appropriate for such a car, at least that’s my opinion. Anyway, Honda’s UK-based performance tuning division has admitted that it wants to come up with a hot version of the supermini. You probably already know that Mugen is developing the limited-run supercharged version of the hybrid-powered CRZ so a sporty Jazz is not out of the equation.

For the Japanese version of the Honda Jazz, Mugen offers plenty of styling packages, but the power increases are very small. In order to come up with a considerably more powerful Jazz, Mugen might use the supercharged hybrid configuration of the CRZ or the engine used in the Civic Type R, a 2.0-liter VTEC high-revving, normally aspirated power plant.

I don’t think that such a car will be successful in Europe where there are dozens of alternatives to choose from. Maybe, by adding a very aggressive bodykit will make the car look more appealing. The renderings in these photos look promising, but we don’t know how the production version will look like, if there will be one. We’ll have to wait and see.
