The Honda Jazz SI is on sale now, for 14,550. It's a limited-edition model based on the Jazz 1.4 ES, with a range of sporty upgrades.

The Jazz Si has a makeover that includes sportier bumpers, side skirts, special 16-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, foglights and Si badges. Inside, there's a leather-trimmed steering wheel and black and silver seat trim.

Although it retains a standard 98bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine, the Jazz Si has revised suspension settings and a larger front anti-roll bar to improve its handling. The steering has also been tweaked, for a more responsive feel.

At 14,550, the Jazz Si costs 800 more than the 1.4 ES model. There's also an Si-T version that comes with satellite-navigation and Bluetooth, for 15,545.

Honda says that production of the Jazz Si is limited to 1000 cars, but that another production run is possible, depending on sales.
