Car Wars: Honda Jazz Sport Vs Honda Type R

Honda has provided car lovers with a double dose of sports car by releasing the Honda Jazz Sport and the Honda Type R. We compare these two.
Honda has graced the public with a double dose of speed, as they launch two new sporty models. This comes after the recent release of the Honda Jazz Sport and the Honda Civic Type R. If Honda hasn't been your brand of choice previously, why not take a look at what these hot wheels have to offer. The Jazz Sport breaks the old peoples' vehicle stereotype that the original Honda Jazz receives. This little sports car has the same exterior as the normal Jazz, however it does have the bells and whistles to make it look like a mean sports car machine. The Type R however, has been improved to provide drivers with comfort and stability on the road. If speed and sound is what you like, then get your hands on this fast-paced cabby. We put these two models to the test as they compete for the top spot. Take a look at the results.

Jazz Sport

The exterior looks very similar to the original Honda Jazz, however it has a sporty edge to it. This is what makes the Jazz Sport a hot buy:
  • Short overhangs;
  • Tapering roofline;
  • Wheel arches;
  • New chassis to accommodate a longer wheel base;
  • Low rolling resistance tyres;
  • Chrome grille and rear combination light.

Honda Type R 

This is the ultimate sporty street car. People are sure to hear and see you coming because of the following features:
  • Brake cooling vents;
  • Aero- dynamic rear wing;
  • Lightweight aluminum-vented bonnet;
  • Centre-mounted triple outlet exhaust.


Jazz Sport 

This sporty family car is a combination of comfort and speed.
  • Specially designed windscreen;
  • Chrome detailing and coloured lighting;
  • A 7-inch touch screen display audio;
  • Multi-Information Display;
  • Bluetooth;
  • Rear seats lift up, fold over and lock down.

Honda Type R

This high speed racer is not only good looking on the outside, but its equipped with a real sporty interior.
  • Engine start button;
  • Race-inspired seats;
  • Premium soft touch materials;
  • Climate control;
  • Cruise control;
  • Electronic parking brake;
  • Apple CarPlay compatible 7” touch screen audio and infotainment system.

  • 6 Speaker sound system;
  • Unique interior styling with red trim accents and stitching.

Model Price
Honda Jazz Sport R310 000
Honda Type R R627 900
  There is quite a big different in price between the two vehicles, however it all depends what the buyer is looking for. If you are looking for a full blown sports car with all the bells and whistles, then the Honda Type R is perfect. Although this model might seem quite pricey, it can't be compared to other sports cars on the market, that offer the same with a much heavier price tag. The Jazz Sport would be classified as your entry level sports car. It is good for nipping around, although it does take a while longer to reach speeds.
