Honda Philippines launches the third generation Jazz that is dubbed “The One”. It combines a fresh look with new technologies to achieve more dynamic performance, fuel economy, and overall functionality.
To be the world’s best functional compact was the goal behind the new Jazz so it’s got some tricks up its sleeve. One of which is its Ultra Seat that folds flat or flips up, giving it the versatility to quickly and easily adapt to a wide variety of passenger and cargo hauling needs.
It boasts four modes for extra storage:
Utility Mode – with Ultra seat folded flat, the vehicle can carry two passengers and larger items.
Tall Mode – with the Ultra seat folded up, the vehicle can carry two or three passengers and tall items with maximum height of 100cm in the second row.
Long Mode – with the Ultra seat folded flat and the front passenger seat reclined all the way back, the vehicle can carry two passengers and a long item with maximum length of 226 cm.
Refresh Mode – the new addition to the Ultra seat configurations; the front seats can be reclined to connect with the rear seats, allowing the driver and passenger to have in-car relaxation.
Here’s a short video showing more of the Jazz’s exterior and interior:
It also has a 7-inch touch screen display that pairs to a smartphone using Bluetooth for hands-free navigation during calls or listening to music. Connectivity-wise, there’s an auxiliary, USB, and even an HDMI port to mirror the phone on the display.
Underneath the hood, the all new Jazz sports a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine coupled with either a 5-speed manual transmission or the new Continuously Variable Transmission. It also promotes fuel efficiency through its ECO Assist system which consists of the ECON mode that controls the engine, drive-by-wire, transmission, and air conditioning performance.
