So this is it, the all new Honda Jazz, in many ways it mirrors the ‘wedge’ like shape of the Civic and in many ways it looks a lot more spritely than the previous generation. But more importantly Honda have revealed the UK pricing for their all new little something.
Prices will start at £13k for entry level S models rising to £16k for top spec EX models. Just one engine is available, the all new 1.3-litre i-VTEC and in four power variants ranging from 106bhp up to 120bhp which is dependent on spec.
The base-grade S models are fitted as standard with air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter and dusk sensing auto lights. Every grade comes with Honda’s City-Brake Active to help avoid low-speed accidents.
The 1.3-litre engine replaces the 1.-4-litre of the previous generation, naturally its more efficient. Combined with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a newly developed CVT, emissions are as low as 106 g/km of CO2.
The all new Jazz is slightly longer than the model it replaces. Honda have re-worked the front suspension geometry which now provides more stable and composed handling so say Honda.
The new suspension also helps dampen road noise and vibration by reducing the intrusion of harsh body inputs. In addition Honda have sound-proofed the hell out of the Jazz, so it should be more quiet on the go.
You can get the all new Jazz in the UK for as little as £139 per month on a PCP, but you’ll have to wait just now because the all-new Jazz will go on sale in the UK by September.
