The Japanese motor company, Honda, unveiled their latest Jazz model at the 85th Geneva Motor Show. This is the latest incarnation of the firm’s favourite subcompact model.
Greater London, Surrey -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/16/2015 -- It is an update of Honda's third generation Jazz, which was launched in 2013 in North America. Initially, it will be available to the Indian market, and will be built there. The new model is 95mm longer than the previous car and has more luggage capacity. It is expected that the ability to fold the rear seats completely flat will be built into this new model.
A 1.3 litre I-VTEC (petrol) or a 1.5 litre I-DTEC (diesel) engine powers the new Honda Jazz. The gearbox is a 5-speed CVT configuration, with the performance model incorporating a paddle shift. Later in the year, Honda is expected to release a hybrid petrol/electric version with a 1.5 litre motor.
Inside the vehicle, there are numerous changes. Honda Connect is included with a 5-inch touchscreen, upgradable to 7 inches, that runs on Android Auto with MirrorLink, built in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Included is HDMI and USB connectivity.
New safety systems have been built into the new Jazz. The Advance Driver Assist System will be fitted as standard on all except the entry-level trim cars. The full trim details are yet to be announced, but once again, Honda is expected to offer a high level of flexibility with this new car.
The introduction of the latest model is bound to spark interest throughout the world and lead to a fast turnover of Hondas across all markets. This means that there will be plenty of new Honda offers available as dealers capitalise on the interest that a new model launch generates. Add to this the fact that, in the UK, demand for new cars is increasing and it is likely that Honda dealers will have a busy quarter.
It is expected that the new Jazz will reach the UK's shores in the summer of 2015. The price has yet to be announced, but it is expected to retail at around £11,531
