2014 Honda Jazz VTi-L Review
Simon Lai road tests and reviews the top-spec Honda Jazz VTi-L.
This is my second review of the Honda Jazz following my comprehensive road test of the entry-level VTi, you catch that full review here.
Under the bonnet the VTi-L boasts the same engine as the VTi, but only comes with a CVT auto.
So, performance wise it was comparable with the VTi and I again averaged 7.5L/100km during a week of city driving.
The VTi-L starts at $22,490 and at $6000 more than the equivalent auto in the base model it may seem a little over priced.
So let’s take a look at what that buys you:
- Smart keyless entry
- Push button start
- A/C touch panel
- Heated leather seats
- Leather steering wheel and gear stick
- Reverse parking sensors
- Electric folding mirrors
- Fog lights
- Body kit
- Alloy wheels
On top of that, the VTi-L features a little spoiler on the hatch, nicer trims and finish and more storage space in the interior.
There are seat pockets on the back of both front seats and a centre console box that contains extra auxiliary inputs.
The VTi-L still has all the features of the lower spec model including, intuitive and ergonomic steering mounted controls, paddle shifters, Bluetooth, reversing camera and foldable rear seats.
The VTi still takes it out for me in the value-for-money department but there’s nothing wrong with a little comfort and the VTi-L is still a favourable offering.
