|Honda Malaysia has introduced the Jazz in a special Carnival Red hue, along with a bunch of refreshed exterior elements, to usher in the new year.|
The 2016 Honda Jazz (S Variant) now comes with a myriad of updates such as; front grille in high-glossed black with chrome plating, chrome-plated rear license garnish and power-adjustable door mirrors.
Based on the 3rd Generation Jazz, the 2016 Jazz in Carnival Red is expected to appeal to the targeted customers, who are predominantly made up of young adults and even tertiary students. The 3rd-gen Jazz variant has continued the legacy of its predecessors as the game changer in the compact hatchback segment with its overall package of versatility, functionality and affordability. Since its launch in July 2014, Honda Malaysia has sold 26,126 units of Jazz as at 31 December 2015.
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and CEO, Yoichiro Ueno said, “We are pleased to introduce the Jazz in Carnival Red, which is a perfect combination of fun and practicality, and we are confident it will be able to meet our young customers’ requirements. The vibrant and striking color complements the versatile lifestyle of the young customers perfectly.”
The 1.5L SOHC i-VTEC engine of the Jazz works seamlessly with the Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) to provide dynamic performance and better fuel efficiency. The design concept of the bold and sporty looking Jazz with its sleek headlights, alloy wheels and rear combi lights has captured the hearts of its young customers with multi-faceted lifestyles.
Taking every passenger into consideration, the Jazz provides a large cabin space which is also highly functional. The well known Versatile Magic Seats offers four different configuration modes which allow versatile usage of the space. The Jazz continues to lead in the B-segment hatchback with its class-leading features such as nine cup holders, smart storage compartments, 7-inch Display Audio, USB & HDMI Ports and Touch Panel Auto Air-Conditioning for everyone in the car.
Safety remains as an important emphasis for Honda variants. In the Jazz, safety features are unrivalled with 6 Airbags (V variant; including Dual Front SRS Airbags, Side Airbags and Side Curtain Airbags), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) (E & V variants), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and ISOFIX.
All grades of the Honda Jazz will now offer Carnival Red to its existing color palette of New Tinted Silver, Taffeta White, Crystal Black Pearl and Modern Steel Metallic. Prices for the Jazz variant range from RM 73,800 until 89,400, which are revised for 2016.
