About 2 months ago, Honda Malaysia has launched the 3rd generation of Honda City.

Previously, the original colors available for this model are available in Alabaster Silver, Polished Metal, Crystal Black Pearl, Deep Lapis Blue Metallic and Bold Beige Metallic.

I guess, the only major change will be the ability for you to purchase your Taffeta White Honda City without actually digging a bigger hole into your pocket. With that said, if you have the opportunity, you should drop by one of the Honda showrooms to get a glimpse of the new car. It really looks good making the Honda City far handsomer than it should be.

The original Honda Jazz model was launched in 2002 and since then has proven to be the leader in its class. The name itself invokes a sense of fun and coolness as for its namesake. The original model won numerous awards and attracted customers from a wide spectrum of drivers, ranging from teenagers to geriatrics this car had supreme mass market or universal appeal.
Thus the new model for this year has some big shoes to fill and although Honda hardly advertised it, the preorders were already piling up by the time the new model was first announced. Word of mouth and the strength of the Jazz reputation as well as branding were already so strong Honda managed to save a pretty penny on advertising. So what’s new in the new Jazz? How can one improve on an already near flawless design? Well to tell the truth, not much, the new Honda Jazz retains most of the features that made the original so widely popular amongst a large demographic whilst updating the exterior façade to keep up with current market preferences.
The engine from the original has been retained in its 1.4 liter form with minor tweaks and adjustments to pass stricter emission and pollution legislations in place in most countries as well as ensure acceptable fuel economy. All different models in the Jazz range retain the legendary steel heart engine of the original. As they say if it’s not broken don’t fix it. The already bulletproof engine required little change if any to improve it and it was a wise and sound decision by Honda to stick with it.
It is the bodywork that truly sets the new Honda Jazz apart from previous models. Although the silhouette of the original remains, closer examination of the car reveals a surprisingly sleeker aerodynamic body with a wind cheating shape that serves to reduce drag coefficient and increase fuel efficiency.
