Honda Malaysia launched the 3rd Generation Jazz on 16 July at KLCC in downtown Kuala Lumpur with three (3) new CKD variants which are priced very competitively.

The Jazz was first introduced in 2001, and both the first and second generations caught on quickly, racking up global sales of 5.2 million units becoming the top selling model among all Honda’s line-up. Back home in Malaysia, the Jazz has been available to consumers since 2002 and has sold 30,573 units to-date.

Seeing the success of the Jazz, Honda Malaysia made the decision to locally assemble the Jazz Hybrid and Jazz Petrol making it more affordable for Malaysians and this paid off as Honda has sold almost 13,000 units in less than 2 years.

The 3rd generation Jazz was developed to be a global model, with the goal of being the “World’s Best Functional Compact”, and with that in mind the Honda R&D team redesigned the Jazz to be Surprisingly Versatile and Spacious; Innovative in Technology and Connectivity Features; and Class-leading in Design and Performance.

Under the hood is an improved 1.5L SOHC i-VTEC engine which works with the newly designed CVT which was developed under Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology. Honda’s new global subcompact platform with a lightweight yet rigid structure emphasizes fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance.

Safety wise, the All-New Jazz is equipped with more safety features including 6 Airbags (V variant; including Dual Front SRS Airbags, Side Airbags and Side Curtain Airbags), Emergency Stop Signal (E & V variant), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) (E & V variant), G-CON body and ISO Fix. The All-New Jazz went through the ASEAN NCAP Crash Test before the launch and Honda is confident that it will achieve a 5-Star safety rating.

The All-New Jazz’s highly functional and versatile interior, which is inspired by Honda’s “Man Maximum, Machine Minimum” philosophy, features a central fuel tank, while the cabin space is bigger, weight is lessened, wheelbase is lengthened. The Jazz also comes equipped with the Versatile Magic Seats with four configuration modes and you can watch the video at the end of this post to see the multiple configurations that are possible. Resulting from the new design, the All-New Jazz has a larger cabin space with a substantial increase in passenger space, shoulder and rear leg rooms, as well as cargo space.

The All-New Jazz is equipped with advanced innovations and connectivity features, and is the first car in its segment to be equipped with an Advanced 7 inch Display Touch Audio with MirrorLink function (V variant).

It also includes a Multi Information Combination Meter, Touch Panel Automatic Air Conditioning (V Variant) and Smart Entry with Push Start Button (E & V variant). The multi-function steering wheel features the advanced Hands Free Telephone Control (V variant) and Voice Recognition Control (V variant), so you can keep both hands firmly planted on the steering wheel at all times.
