2008 Honda JazzThis is the recently launched Honda Jazz by Happy Motoring Co Sdn Bhd. My first encounter with the new Jazz was in Miri a month ago. The new Jazz is undoubtedly refreshing. Its way better than the 1st one. The design of the exterior is well sought after, no more Minivan look on the rear side of this car. The front end is a mimic to the Civic Type R look. The Honda Jazz comes with a 16inch alloy wheels as standard.
There are two version of the Jazz offered by the dealer, a 1.5Liter Ivtec with 5speed automatic Steering Paddle shifters and a 1.3Liter Ivtec with 5 speed auto or manual transmission. For 1.3Liter ivtec engine it is rated 100hp while the 1.5Liter ivtec engine is 120hp. Pretty good enough for fast pace economical engine.
The car do comes with surprises. Eventhough the shape of exterior is small but the interior is spacious. With multiple configurations of the seats, you can manage to put in a full size bicycle in it. Now that is spacey. What is Jazz without music, the new Honda Jazz comes with an Mp3/WMA playable head unit fitted with a Usb interface for the Ipod Users.
The Jazz comes with 14inch Front disc and 13inch rear disc brake mated with a Honda ABS system to prevent the wheel locking in emergency braking situation. Front airbags also comes in standard.
The Jazz comes in variety of colors; Premium Deep Violet Pearl, Milano Red, Taffeta White, Crystal Black Pearl, Cerrulean Blue Metallic and many more. Happy Motoring Co Sdn Bhd also offers a Modulo bodykit for the jazz as optional accersories.
The price tag for the new Jazz is however a bit pricey, for a 1.5Liter Ivtec(Top range model) $32,990 and for the 1.3Liter Ivtec Auto is $28,990.
