Honda's a genius in churning out state-of-the-art small cars.

 

Here's why. 

 

The 2014 Honda Jazz is 4cm shorter but it offers 138 liters more cabin-space volume and nearly 13cm of extra rear legroom - compared to the predecessor.

 

Here's how Honda engineers eked out extra room in a shorter car.

 

For starters, Jazz's wheelbase has been stretched further apart by 3cm allowing its rear seat bench to move back outwardly by 7.6cm. Next, engineers made the centrally-mounted fuel tank located beneath the front seats thinner liberating more space for passengers but retains the same liter-volume as previous models.

 

Plus, the new Jazz could be served in a hedonic shade of lemonade yellow to go with its packaging.

From what I know, only the Accord and City are MIT, stand corrected though.

not only honda, MIJ in general din come out with pretty bnb car for sometime, maybe the new vios was an exception? i duno.... but beauty is really in eyes of the beholder... unless no one buys it, we can't say everyone finds it ugly.

 

however, one thing i find is MIJ technology or i would say, durability is still some what better den MIK as i find some people finding problem with 4-5yo avente and forte but yet to see any complain abt fit yet...

 

i am comparing these 3 models coz i remember 4-5yrs ago a few of my friends were thinkering between these models and most went for MIK except 1 bought a fit.

 

4-5 yrs on, the fit owner have no major complain yet...but a couple of MIK owners did find some steering problem...

 

of coz my findings are far from conclusive, just an exprience to share..

For practical reasons, this car is slightly bigger than before, still as reliable as ever and pricing is still considered good value. Still a worthy purchase if you put looks aside.

 

If looks top your priority, go for Mazda 3 or A-class.

Based on post 11, seems that the boot is large for hatch. Somewhat quasi wagon. I believe this model 1.5 is GDI.

It's not a van. Or a Volvo estate. But the '15 Jazz. Where have all the chairs gone?!

Hope the rear space can fit 2 x child seats & fit a 1.6-1.7m tall 60-70kg adult decently.

 

The rear boot area also looks like it extends far back enough from rear seat to tahan a rear collision from a BnB car.

The design ugly or not, dont think many people will buy due to the crazy car price now. If the car price now is around $60k plus for a jazz, i believe even design not say very nice, there are still many people buy, cause it is a honda.

Just saw Honda website that Jazz priced $110,900 for the 1.3

and $114,900 for the 1.5. There's also a 5K early bird discount.

Depending on the OMV, thought it seemed a reasonable price.

Thoughts from others?
