Honda Jazz was just launched in Thailand last week, with starting price of THB 555,000 (Rs 9.96 lakhs approx.). The new Jazz with updated styling and other functional features will be launched in Indonesia as well, in August 2014.
However, new plan for Jazz will be revealed in June, following commencement of booking in July. This does not mean India is getting it any earlier, we will still see the Jazz on road only by early 2015. Honda is currently intensifying focus on Mobilio, which is to be launched in July 2014.
The new Jazz comes with a laundry list of contemporary features including 6 AirBags, ABS with EBD, G-Con (G-Force Control System), Vehicle Stability Control, Hill Climb Assist and Emergency Stop Signal. Multimedia System is equipped with a 7″ touchscreen system with smartphone interface, HDMI (High Definition Media Interface) input for audio and video, voice command functions and SIRI eye free mode, apart from HondaLink Software Application for smartphones.
Some more newfangled features like smart entry, 4 adjustable seating position modes, smartphone holder, tablet computer box, 9 cup holders, trip computer and automatic climate control make the new Honda Jazz very cool to own.
