  • Honda Jazz (2008 - 2015)
    Neatly styled. Increased room and better performance than original Jazz. better to drive. Very versatile. CVT-7 returned in February 2011 replacing i-SHIFT. More reliable than first generation Jazz.
  • Honda Jazz (2001 - 2008)
    Clever interior redefined the small car. Most space efficient small car built. Very reliable first 3 - 4 years.
