Jazz 1.3 VS 1.5

Happy almost CNY. Kah Motors CNY deals seem to be expiring the end of the week and I'm debating between the 1.3LX and 1.5 RS.

Price of the 1.3LX is 68,999 and seems like the most budget friendly.

What do you get for the 1.5RS except a bigger price of $82,999?
- 16" Rims that look awesome
- Nicer looking spoiler
- Keyless Entry
- Pushbutton Start (how cool)

My needs are typical of a small family of 4. 2 kids in the back wife up front. I drive to work that's about 15km away - so about 30 minutes twice a day.

I'm leaning 1.3 to be honest but reading everything hear seems like 1.5 is the way to go.

Anyone have any last minute thoughts to sway one way or the other?

Thanks!

1.5RS is the way to go. The keyless entry and one button start stop matters in terms of security and resale value. Also, you will likely appreciate better horsepower especially when u are carrying full pax.

Based on specs sheet, the fuel consumption for 1.5 will be higher than 1.3, you need to factor this is as well.

Ultimately it’s not what’s best but it’s about what you need and what you want.

If 1.3 is what you’re capable and comfortably buy for; then it’s wise to follow your guts.

For me, I will personally prefer keyless entry and start stop, these are important factors when I choose which model to scout for..

why don't you get something else like a city or avante at 70+k?
atleast the boot space is better and can absorb some impact from collision compared to a hatch

I was pondering the resale value with the 1.5RS vs the 1.3

Part of me thinks if I'm going to get the 1.5RS I might as well get the Vezel HR-V DX for $87,999.

Hmm.

The 20k more is not worth it.
200cc difference can hardly feel it.
Bigger Rims eats into fuel consumption
Keyless entry are prone to car burglary

Buy PI Fit 1.3, 68K with keyless entry, start/stop button, leather rims, touch screen HU.
Then just spend $2K get a set of branded 16" lightweight rims.

Honda Fit 1.3 petrol has keyless start stop, rear wiper, touchscreen climate control, leather seats, auto folding window amongst others, secured mine at $64k+ ( 15inch rims)

Hybrid 1.3 saves fuel, more efficient in terms of speed but that depends on your faith in hybrid tech. With a family, you are probably looking at long term maintenance cost as a factor as well

I will go for the Fit Hybrid in your case. Honda Fit Hybrid 1.5 is now around $77k. The saving in fuel over 10 years should reduce the price difference with the Honda Jazz 1.3 to possibly just $3-4k. If not, just get the Honda Fit 1.3 that costs around $63k.

But have you factored in possibility of the need for battery change? Unless your warranty is 10 years long. And you must drive alot.

Was deciding over 1.5 RS or 1.3 too. The 1.5 really do look better with the RS body kit/Rim and also the keyless entry plus the digital aircon unit looks so much better. O ya. The Headlight too. DRL and LED. The 1.3 still use normal bulb and cannot be change to DRL/LED

In the end book the 1.3 due to the difference in price. Close to 15k. But now my heart still go with the RS. Guess i just need to change the body kit and rim

If you can afford the difference then got for the RS. For me i got other commitment.
