Honda hits the road with its second-generation Jazz, on sale from under $16,000

29 Aug 2008

HONDA has righted almost all of the old Jazz wrongs with the second-generation version, out now in three models kicking off from $15,990. Besides boasting an all-new body and interior, many of the mechanical elements have been overhauled, including the steering and suspension for a marked improvement in driveability and ride comfort. But the Jazz still looks, feels and fits like the little Honda that reset class benchmarks back in 2002, and the latest iteration – apart from the odd minor quibble – appears set to do the same again in 2009.
Model release date: 1 August 2008 to 1 June 2014

HONDA turned the light-car market on its ear with the first-generation Jazz.

Relocating the fuel tank from under the rear seat to the car’s centre liberated packaging space, making the little Japanese runabout a sort of automotive Tardis. Engine choices were a SOHC 61kW/119Nm 1.3-litre or 81kW/143Nm 1.5-litre four, with five-speed manual or industry-leading CVT auto. Three five-door hatchback models were offered – GLi, VTi and VTi-S, with a minor facelift and specification upgrade arriving in late 2004. Production moved from Japan to Thailand two years later.
