    Make some room for the new Honda Jazz

    From September, the ever popular Honda Jazz will be bigger and better – literally!

    The new model of the supermini is 95mm longer than the previous model and has a wheelbase that is 30mm longer, opening up a range of new features that make this model more spacious and even more inviting than its predecessor. 

    The boot space first of all is now an impressive 354 litres, expanding to 897 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.  Just like its Honda siblings, the new Jazz boasts ‘Magic seats’ which allows the bench seats to be moved into numerous configurations to provide maximum space and accessibility inside. Honda states that these seats as well as the layout of the central fuel tank ensure ‘genuine customer benefits in terms of versatility, interior practicality and storage solutions’.

    Three trim levels will be available on the Jazz, with the S offering standard equipment such as air conditioning, cruise control, a 5 inch LCD display and automatic lights. Not bad for entry level! Spend a little more and the SE model comes with electric door mirrors, 15 inch alloy wheels and parking sensors on the front and back to help with those tight spots. The top end EX model comes with bigger 16 inch alloy wheels, an upgraded audio system and keyless entry and start, as well as climate control.

    Both the SE and Ex models will also come with the latest Honda infotainment system packed with features such as internet browsing, traffic updates and real time news and weather, all displayed on a 7 inch touchscreen that takes pride of place on the dashboard. The Advanced Driver Assist package will also feature on all but S models and Honda has confirmed that it will be used across their 2015 product range. The package hosts a range of safety savvy features such as forward collision warning system and intelligent speed limiter.

    On its launch, the Jazz will be available with a 1.3 litre i-VTEC petrol engine that can come with a six-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission. The 101bhp engine is capable of reaching around 61.4mpg and emitting around 106g/km of C02 with the automatic transmission. However, it is believed that after its initial launch, the Jazz will be available in a 1.0 litre option.

    An all-round competitor for the supermini range and there’s no doubt that the new Honda will uphold its family name and impress loyal customers with a bigger, better Jazz experience.
