Mugen Contemplating Pumped-Up Jazz


Hot hatches are a very special type of car. Supercar thrills on a shoestring? YES PLEASE! Legends such as the Focus RS, Clio Cup and 500 Abath define the breed that does nothing other than bring a smile to your face. The Honda Jazz however is not what we would expect to be the basis of a spicy hatchback. Yet the school-run shuttle may get its chance as Mugen talk superchargers.

The Jazz has won a handful of awards but never one for performance, mainly because it was designed to carry 5 people in relative comfort around town. The mad men at Mugen have said that they have always wanted to make a hot Jazz and doing so wouldn’t be much of a task. Visually the package is already there as the in-house tuners provide various accessories for owners. The dream could become a reality using the up and coming CR-Z’s supercharged engine.
