The all new Jazz is set to impress… With a more chiseled and dynamic look it oozes style and sophistication. The new car has a prominent front grille and tapering creases along the doors but is still recognisably a Jazz. The Jazz has been re-designed to create an astonishing interior space meaning more leg, shoulder and headroom for you and your passengers, unrivalled in class. With the same magic seating system as its predecessor, the Jazz remains one of the most versatile and dynamic cars in its class.
A new 101bhp 1.3 litre Earth Dreams Technologies engine is available with the option of a 6 speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission. The 1.3 engine is capable of returning over 60mpg.
The new Jazz will be available in three trim levels, dubbed S, SE and EX. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control and automatic lights. Se cars get 15-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors and electric door mirrors. Top level EX cars get 16-inch Alloys, an upgraded stereo system, keyless entry and go and climate control.
There’s also new in-car infotainment system – Honda Connect – that offers real time news, traffic and weather updates and internet browsing as well as a 7-inch touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard. This won’t come as standard, though a 5-inch LCD display comes on S models.
New safety features are included in the Advanced Driver Assist package, which is available as standard on all but the entry-level trims. This new safety technology will be used across Honda’s new product line up in 2015.
With prices starting from only £13,995 and all of this specification as standard, I think most will agree that this is a very promising addition to the Honda range.
