Super versatile! The 4th generation Honda Jazz hits our shores and is now ready for booking.
Honda’s small hatchback is back, and this time, you can choose from three variants, with two engine options available.
The first Honda Jazz made waves back in 2001, with its outstanding packaging and fuel economy. The new car, which will be officially launched here, end January, sports a minimalistic design, refreshingly spacious interior, outstanding ride comfort, sporty drive performance and impressive fuel economy.
The new car features a short nose, a long roofline and cabin-forward design, that is a carryover from previous generation cars. Honda states that the new design philosophy is encapsulated in the Japanese notion of 'Yoo no bi'. This recognises the beauty that exists in everyday items, which have been honed over time to make them even more beautiful and ergonomically satisfying to use for their specific purpose.
"We have developed this car as an entity that has the power to enrich the daily lives of those who use it," explains Takeki Tanaka, Large Project Leader.
The new Honda Jazz offers a new 9” touchscreen display, boasting smartphone-style usability, and connects to both Android and Apple mobile devices.
The Jazz retains the rear ULTRA Seat configuration that offers both fold-flat or flip-up seat flexibility, a feature that is one of the biggest selling points of the car.
To improve its handling, the Jazz now includes Honda’s Agile Handling Assist (AHA) system, while rigidity of the body has increased through the use of a higher percentage of high tensile strength steel, that helps to reduce weight, and improve on the car’s safety performance in the event of a crash.
Three variants will be available, - 1.5 Base, 1.5 Home and 1.5 Luxe e: HEV. The last-mentioned being a hybrid, where buyers will be able to enjoy a $15,000 rebate under the Enhanced VES scheme.
