The 2016 Honda Jazz will hit the European market in the 2015 summers. Nevertheless, the hatchback was unveiled in the Geneva Motor Show this year. Put in a nutshell, it is a third-generation version that comes with a bold, overly complex interior and interior styling. It also encompasses a B-segment body, giving it a burly and elegant look in contrast to the antecedent model. In line with Honda, it rides on a potent and aptly ensconced engine, gives driver-friendly driving manners and features an entrancing exterior.  


The 2016 Honda Jazz will be equipped with a 1.3-liter gas mill which will churn out 101-hp and 100 pound-feet of twist. It is mated to a six-speed gearbox that is offered as a standard option. Nevertheless, a CVT auto transmission provides an option of the seven-speed. The dichotomy of the twin transmissions is fuel efficiency. The manual power unit delivers 29 mpg city/37 mpg hwy. The CVT, on the other hand, returns 33 mpg city/42 mpg hwy. Soon, the automaker will offer hybrid variants, outfitted with a 1.5-liter petrol mill mated with an electric motor to churn out 133 horsepower.

The Honda Jazz will feature a finely designed cabin with rambling leather seats that are clean-friendly and comfortable to the skin. Every component is made of high-grade materials. The driver and passengers will get more upscale, up-to-date safety and technology devices that support proper navigation. There is an incorporated single CD audio player encompassing entertainment to all passengers. The auto will be mounted with four speakers, USB port and twin tweeters. The gauge will incorporate a bigger LED screen which will offer a wide array of data, including miles covered, speed, and fuel use. There will be foldable rear-seats that will give more space. Every model will come with power folding-mirrors plus a GPS navigating program.  

On the exterior, the model is quite akin to the Honda Fit, imparting quaint design and showcases an exotic and powerful frontal facial highlights and muscular contours. Up front, the Jazz will boast potent fog lights, powerful LED lights and conspicuously ensconced frontal bumper air-inlets to discharge excess air boosting its brutish performance and facilitating it to reach the top speed. Some of the air trapped in a unique compartment is used to ventilate the cabin from beneath the hood. It will be underpinned on a system of 15” alloy wheels having hubcaps. The body kit styling is finely streamlined to cut swiftly against the air. This enables the auto to achieve high speeds easily and minimal vibration. 

Ultimately, the Honda features a wide array of safety equipment, including the ABS/electronic brake force distribution system, front standard air bags, and rearview parking assist camera. With more advanced components, it will come with an intelligent speed assist, lane veer off alert, forward crash alert, traffic alert system and a high beam bolster setup. The features all together provide drivers with ample solutions to navigate accidents.  

Wholly, the Jazz is elegant, powerful in performance and aesthetically enhanced on the exterior to meet the needs of modern day buyers.
