Spiced-up Jazz now available for booking and all-new Jazz Hybrid soon
Petaling Jaya, 11 May 2017 – The popular Jazz Petrol gets a make-over and is now available for booking at all Honda outlets. This comes with an eyebrow-rising announcement that the all-new Jazz Hybrid will be available from Q3 2017.
The Jazz Hybrid will be equipped with the Sport Hybrid system, making Honda Malaysia the only country outside of Japan to introduce Honda’s new intelligent Dual-Clutch Drive (i-DCD) Hybrid System.
The 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC engine combining 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission with integrated High Power Motor promotes superior acceleration with improved response resulting in sporty drive feel for the driver. Independent positioning and functionality of the motor and the engine allows the vehicle to develop Electric Vehicle (EV) mode drivability and elongate the sustenance of regenerative energy which further increases the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
The Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) of the Jazz Hybrid is made of Lithium ion (Li-ion) battery which has a higher capacity for better performance. The combined horsepower of both the system and engine is at 137PS which is equivalent to 1.8L engine output. The handling and agility is further enhanced by fine tuning done on the electric power steering to provide sportier handling and comfort during cruising.
The Jazz (Petrol) which is being powered by 1.5L i-VTEC engine coupled with Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) developed under Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology will feature new Chrome Front Grille, new Front and Rear Bumper Design, Dual Tone colour Alloy Wheel and LED Daytime Running Lights for enhanced stylish outlook. The Smart Entry and Push Start Button will be the standard feature across all variant. Half-Leather Seats and Reverse Camera will also be available for customer comfort and convenience.
The Jazz Hybrid will be making its official appearance at Carlist.my MAA Drive, Test & Buy Event this weekend (13th-14th May 2017) at Setia City Convention Centre (Hall 1 & 2) between 10am to 10pm.
