Honda Jazz going strong in UK

Japan’s award-winning Honda Fit is having its sales going strong in UK, being the Jazz.

Honda Motor Corp., a Japanese automaker, has launched the Jazz in 2002. Since then, the company was able to have 134,399 units sold in the UK. The sales figure made the Jazz retain its top five sector position, though there are a lot of new competing products in the market these days.

In the past four year, Jazz made it up to the number one spot amongst its competitor set. An average of 19,300 units is being sold every year. Since it is really selling so well, Honda decided to delay the introduction of the new model in UK, until late in 2008.

With the demand for new and used Jazz examples, the residual values are at normal levels expected from a newly introduced car. That simply mean it is not like that of five years into its lifecycle. The Jazz must retain 40 per cent of its value after three years or an average of 60,000 miles.

As with the all-new Jazz … Honda sustained the popular small car with the its best features, including class leading economy, cabin space to rival mid-sized saloons, and easy maneuverability. But, it also brought subtle design changes as well as clever interior space solutions.

The new Jazz will be powered with either a 1.5 L i-VTEC or frugal 1.3 L i-VTEC – along with available CVT transmission. For enhance stability and handling, the Jazz now has a longer wheelbase and wider track.

Inside, there is a rotating passenger seat available. The seat now has a higher position than before. There is also an additional foot space, as well as specially contoured seat cushion.

The Jazz topped the recent J.D. Power Survey supermini sector – for the fourth consecutive years. It also led this year’s Which? Reliability tables. It is also kept unbeaten in five top 5 category finishes in the Auto Express Driver Power Survey. It was even awarded Best Supermini at the Fleet News Awards in 2006. Totally award-winning!!!
