About the Honda Jazz
With a body not even reaching 4-meters, it features a large passenger compartment with seat arrangement that can be easily modified allowing 4 different configurations. This multi-arrangement called "Ultra seat" fits perfectly to every day life as it is ideal for shopping or for outdoor activities. Many innovations were incorporated such as a 4-cylinder 1.3l engine with low fuel consumption (can run 23km with 1 liter of fuel) and double ignition points coupled with a continuously variable transmission CVT which allowed the car to adapt to the road type and to procure smooth and comfortable acceleration. The Honda Jazz (Fit in Japan) acquired great popularity and thanks to it, was elected the car of the year 2000-2001 in Japan.
