Car Profiles - Honda Jazz

HONDA JAZZ

No more 1.3 engine but you get tons of neat stuff including six airbags and a touchscreen automatic air-con system. While the redesign had more equipment, 1.5 VX+ is priced dangerously. 1.5 V Mugen Limited Edition now available with 30 units for grabs.

The Good: Still the king of versatility, still one of the smartest in its segment.
The Bad: Pricing is kinda dangerous, the competition is also advancing for lesser entry price.

Price Range: P793,000-P998,000

  2. Sorry for the late reply. Here is Honda's official website http://hondaphil.com/

    About the VX having VSA, hill launch assist and emergency stop signal: the three items are available for the VX and VX+ models. We've made a double check.

    Hope it helps!
