If you’re in the market for a hatchback that is spacious, fuel efficient and checks all the boxes when it comes to safety and style, there’s really no better option than the Honda Jazz
First introduced in 2003, the Honda Jazz is one of the most popular hatchbacks in Malaysia.
It is so popular, in fact, that the current generation Jazz, has been the bestselling No.1 non-national hatchback in Malaysia.
Coupled with a tonne of safety features, industry-leading tech and an affordable price tag, the Honda Jazz is indeed the most complete hatchback you can find in the market.
Don’t believe us? Let us change your mind on that:
#1 Hey there, good looking!
Not all hatchbacks come with a design that would turn heads, but thankfully, the Honda Jazz is not one of them. When you purchase a Honda Jazz, it comes with an attractive Front Bumper
, a Tailgate Spoiler
with an integrated third brake light, a 16-inch Dual Tone Wheels
and sporty Rear Combi Lights
It also comes with a Smart Entry system
, so you don’t have to fumble for your key, as well as LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
and a Multi-Angle Reverse Camera
. Style and function? We likey.
#2 You’re never leaving the car
Honda has labelled the interior of the Jazz as ‘Your Big Playground’ because it is filled with tech innovations you’ll never get tired of playing with.
Smack in the center of the cockpit, you’ll find a seven-inch Touchscreen Display Audio
which supports HDMI Connectivity
and Call Function
. The HDMI connectivity enables you to have some of your favourite smartphone apps on the touchscreen via an HDMI port.
On the dashboard, you’ll get a bright and bold LCD Meter Cluster
, a Push Start Button
and a Touch Panel Auto Air Conditioning
#3 Keeping you safe
Don’t worry, the Honda Jazz is not just about its good looks. It comes with a host of safety features as well. You get six airbags
, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA)
to help you keep your car in control around tight corners, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS)
to alert other drivers on sudden braking, Hill Start Assist (HSA)
to prevent your cars from rolling backwards and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
to help prevent your wheels from locking when you step too hard on the brakes.
The safety features have earned the Honda Jazz a 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating in Adult Occupant Protection.
#4 All the space you need
We know what you’re thinking: ‘Space and hatchback? Got meh?’. You’ll be surprised! According to Honda, the Jazz is the only hatchback in the market that makes creative use of space by using ULTRA seats
. With the ULTRA seats which comes in half-leather, you can flip them into various modes to create space to put your things. It doesn’t matter if you want to put your groceries, an IKEA furniture or an entire surf board, you can make it happen with the Honda Jazz.
The reason why the Honda Jazz is more spacious is because it ultilises a center tank layout
. In layman’s term, by moving the fuel tank to the center of the car, you have more space to play around. Oh, did we mention that they also have a whopping nine cup holders
in the car? Talking about having enough space for everything.
#5 It’s a zippy little thing
If you want to get from Point A to Point B fast, you can count on the Honda Jazz. Powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC Engine
and a Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)
, you can be sure that you’ll have lots of fun every time you’re behind the wheel. The Honda Jazz also comes with an ECON Mode
, so you can save some fuel when you’re stuck in a jam.
Want to enjoy getting from Point A to Point B? Well, it’s a good thing that the Honda Jazz also comes with Paddle Shift
, so you can manually kick the gear up or down a level for a more responsive drive. If you want a more relaxing drive, you can activate the Cruise Control
to set your car to auto-pilot.
