Live Photos: 2020 Honda Jazz RS showcased at the Bangkok International Motor Show

Honda Thailand has shown various models at this year's Bangkok International Motor Show. Seen alongside the 2020 Honda City Turbo RS is this 2020 Honda Jazz RS. 

The Jazz RS is powered by a 1.5-litre four-pot that makes 117 PS and 146 Nm of torque. Power is delivered through a CVT to its front wheels.

Malaysian-spec Honda Jazz engine.

It's 3 PS lesser than the engine we get (120 PS) due to it being tuned to run on E85 gasohol fuel and therefore complying to Thailand's CO2 rules.

Anyway, let's take a closer look and see what's different from the our range-topper, the V variant. 

Up front, the RS features LED headlights and daytime running lights (DRL) alongside a redesigned front bumper.

While we still keep the DRL (albeit looking different), our Jazz variants have halogen headlights instead. 

Four newly designed 16-inch wheels round the sides. We get the same wheel design here.

At the back, there’s an RS-exclusive bumper and rear spoiler. Subtle but nice redesigns. Like the City, it also has black side-mirrors with integrated indicators. 

Finishing off the look are RS exclusive colours, Phoenix Orange Pearl and this Platinum White Pearl. 

The Jazz RS features auto air-conditioning and a 7-inch touchscreen (bigger than our 6.8-inch unit) infotainment system that now supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

These are welcome additions, since we found the current infotainment system not very impressive.

The cloth seats have orange stitching that break up the predominantly black interior and also look somewhat different to the ones we get.

The 2020 Honda Jazz RS retails for THB 739,000. On our shores, the Jazz starts at RM 72,511.54.
