New Jazz a mile­stone event

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

The new Honda Jazz of­fers two en­gines with Honda’s i-VTEC in­tel­li­gent vari­able valve tim­ing sys­tem, ei­ther a 1,2-litre, four-cylin­der en­gine or the proven 1,5. While a five-speed man­ual is avail­able from R179 900, most buy­ers will opt for the con­stantly vari­able trans­mis­sion (CVT) from R221 900. Seven model op­tions are avail­able. ‘The ar­rival of the all-new Honda Jazz is a mile­stone event for the South African mar­ket,’ says Gra­ham Ea­gle, Honda Mo­tor South­ern Africa’s di­rec­tor of op­er­a­tions. ‘The Jazz al­ready en­joys an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion for flex­i­bil­ity, safety, ef­fi­ciency and qual­ity. How­ever, this third-gen­er­a­tion model sets new bench­marks across the board.’ De­spite its sporty com­pact di­men­sions, the new Jazz em­ploys a longer wheel­base and in­tel­li­gent pack­ag­ing to cre­ate a more spa­cious, more invit­ing cabin that also de­liv­ers fur­ther en­hanced lev­els of ver­sa­til­ity and flex­i­bil­ity.
