The Honda Jazz, a magical car that violates the physical quality, has a small body but a very large interior and a cheap price, but the driving feel is surprisingly superior. The materials used in the cabin are relatively high-quality. The current generation was launched in 2014. This is its Facelift style. Basically, we are lazy about how it looks like small changes, known to continue to be worthy of support.
In addition to the small changes in the routine appearance of the Jazz, a leapfrog active safety system is now added: automatic braking. Honda's system is called CTBA (City Brake Assist), which can pass through the laser detector in the windshield. It is used to detect obstacles in front to “beep” warning and stop. Although it is only effective in the slower 5-30km/h, it can also prevent forward collision to a certain extent. It is unique in the entry-level car of its kind, and it is really big. One piece of news; another major event is that the agency will introduce RS's 6-speed stick wave model, so that stick wave fans will eventually have “licensed goods” to drive.
The current Jazz is designed based on Honda’s “Earth Dreams Technology” environmental protection technology launched in 2011. When it was launched, it had a new engine, a new gearbox, and a new front strut/rear torsion bar suspension. The frame was 23% made of high rigid steel. Manufacture, in addition to weight reduction, it is also harder. The new small changes include new design headlights, the new mask has two electroplated “eyeliners” under the headlights, the new head and tail pump handles have more three-dimensional “eight”-shaped wing designs, and the head has a chin spoiler , There are thinner left and right “wine vortex” and Diffuser at the tail. The taillights are not different in appearance. Instead, LED brake lights are used. The new door side mirrors have a slightly longer body length of 80mm under the new pump handle. The tested RS model has There are different designs of surround and roof and rear wing, front and rear lips are decorated with red lines, door mirrors have changed from the same color as the body before to bright black, and the 16-inch wheels are the same.
In cheap cars, Jazz’s cabin design and materials have always been applauded, and there is no big difference after minor changes. The plastic parts will not feel Cheap, the imitation leather parts are flat, and the fiber cloth seats used in the RS version are broken. The pattern, the look and feel are high-quality, it is located in a comfortable body. There is a carbon fiber decorative strip on the front of the front passenger. The center console is slightly inclined to the driver. The air-conditioning vent has a matt silver frame and dark black. The air-conditioning control panel is displayed with LEDs like high-end music. The temperature and wind speed are changed by light-touch buttons. There are also silver foot pedals, which are all beautiful; the command light stick, electric window buttons and wheel dial turn wave system, etc. There is a crisp feel that is rare in similar cars.
The first-generation Jazz adopted a mid-mounted cylinder chassis design (that is, the cylinder is located under the front seat), which has provided amazing seating space in the rear seat. Honda has further improved it when the current generation is launched. With an increase of 110mm, even if the front seat sits on a taller person, the rear seat has a leg position comparable to that of a larger RV. This amazing situation remains the same. Remove the front seat headrest and flatten the back of the chair. It can be patted like a bed with the back seat, which is convenient for talking with your companions or doing anything. The rear seat cushion can be fully raised to facilitate the placement of large objects with great flexibility. , Is another big selling point of Jazz.
The mechanical specifications of the car series and the driving feeling remain the same. The primary 1.3 model has the same engine output of 100 horses and 119 Newton meters, priced at $163,880; the tested 1.5 RS is priced at $189,880, and the same 132 horses and 155 Newton meters output. The “Earth Dreams Technology” i-VTEC valve timing control engine has the most average acceleration in the middle of the commonly used revolutions. The higher the revolution, there will be resistance, and it starts to be noisy. Generally acceptable; 18.7km/L average fuel consumption The amount has not changed. The new CVT variable transmission gearbox used in the current generation has improved hydraulic control; Honda’s CVT gearbox has always had a quicker response among similar gearboxes, and the number of revolutions is less up and down like a roller coaster. Floating, the same is true for Jazz, the RS version can also add and subtract 7-speed dials manually. The excellent driving texture of the car continues to be appreciated by us. Its hard chassis creates smooth and smooth shock absorption. The cabin has excellent sound insulation; the slightly rigid and responsive suspension makes it easy to get on the road. Unlike similar Japanese cars, they are mostly floating. , The more you open it, the more stuffy it gets; it's so light that it's a direct wheel, and it's a good feeling that a cheap head-drive car rarely has.
The interior, especially the wide rear seat, the material used in the similar cars is pretty, the seats are flexible, the running texture is smooth, the suspension is light, the wheel feel is excellent, the price is affordable, and now I know more about automatic braking. Jazz continues to be the most comprehensive and An affordable one.
The tail pump handle has a more three-dimensional “eight”-shaped wing design, thinner left and right “wine vortex” and diffuser, no different shape of the taillights, instead of LED brake lights, RS models have red line decoration.
The new small changes include a new design headlight. The new face mask has two electroplated “eyeliners” under the headlights. The new head pump handle has a more three-dimensional “eight”-shaped fin design with a chin spoiler in the middle.
The car has the most average acceleration in the middle of the usual number of revolutions, and the higher the revolution, there is resistance, and it starts to be noisy, which is generally acceptable; the average fuel consumption of 18.7km/L remains unchanged.
Remove the front seat headrest and flatten the back of the chair. It can be patted like a bed with the back seat, which is convenient for chatting with your companions or doing anything. The rear seat cushion can be fully raised to facilitate the placement of large objects with great flexibility.
The center-mounted cylinder chassis design provides amazing seating space in the rear seat. Even if the front seat is taller, the rear seat has leg positions comparable to larger RVs.
Honda's CVT gearbox has always had a quicker response than similar gearboxes, and the number of revolutions is less up and down like a roller coaster. The new CVT used in this generation has improved oil pressure control.
For the new door mirror, the Honda Jazz RS is changed from the same color as the car body to bright black.
