Honda has announced prices for the all-new Honda Jazz supermini and the stunning new Honda HR-V subcompact crossover.
The new Jazz will be priced from €17,395 for the entry-level SE model, rising to €21,900 for the flagship EX CVT model, while the new HR-V will be priced from €23,995 for the 1.5 i-VTEC petrol, and from €25,995 for the frugal 1.6 i-DTEC diesel. The all-new Jazz builds on the strong reputation of its highly successful predecessors.
The newcomer retains the classic Jazz silhouette yet exhibits distinctive contemporary styling, including a powerful new face and strong character lines. A new platform increases overall length by 95 mm, but highly efficient packaging means that the latest Jazz is proportionally even bigger on the inside than the previous generation model.
Occupants will benefit from both boot space (354 litres with the rear seats up and 1,314 litres with the rear seats down ) and passenger space that are unrivalled in the class. The all-new Jazz offers exceptional versatility, retaining Honda’s highly practical Magic Seat system which allows for numerous cargo configurations and a maximum interior loading length of an impressive 2,480 mm.
Specifications are generous across the range, with all models fitted as standard with convenience features such as air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter and dusk sensing auto lights. Every grade also comes with Honda’s City-Brake Active to help avoid low-speed accidents. Customers opting for the ES or EX models will also benefit from the Honda Connect in-car infotainment system as standard.
ES and EX models will be fitted with Honda’s ‘Dynamic Safety Pack’, which uses radar sensors, plus forward- and rear-facing cameras.
This power unit delivers the sprightly driving performance of the previous Jazz’s 1.4 litre engine, together with fuel economy equivalent to its 1.2 litre. Combined with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a newly developed CVT, emissions are as low as 106 g/km of CO2 for annual road tax from €190. The all-new Jazz will go on sale here early this month.
All-new HR-V Crossover
The all-new HR-V blends characterful coupé looks with the tough, solid stance of a robust SUV. Inside, occupants will find class-leading boot space (470 litres with the rear seats up and 1,533 litres with the rear seats down ). Thanks to innovative packaging, the HR-V has exceptional versatility incorporating Honda’s highly practical Magic Seats system.
Designed and engineered to achieve a five-star Euro NCAP rating, every new HR-V sold in Ireland will be equipped with Honda’s City-Brake Active System as standard, with ES and EX models featuring Honda’s Dynamic Safety Pack. Honda says that the HR-V boasts an engaging drive coupled with efficient performance, thanks to a choice of all-new 130 PS 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol and 120 PS 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engines. The all-new Honda HR-V arrives here in Ireland later this month.
