2015 Honda Jazz should Fit right in

01-2016-honda-jazz-geneva-1

When is a Honda Fit not a Honda Fit? When it’s a Honda Jazz. In other markets around the world, our pleasant little Fit hatchback uses a jazzier nomenclature, but what you’re looking at here isn’t simply a rebadged version of the car we know and love.

For starters, the Euro-spec Jazz uses a 1.3-liter VTEC engine from Honda’s Earth Dreams line, tuned to produce 101 horsepower. (The US-spec Fit, meanwhile, cranks out 130 hp from its larger, 1.5-liter engine.) That powerplant is mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable unit, and will be the only engine initially available at launch. From there, it’s pretty much the same, save the small running lamps that flank the foglamps.

The Jazz should fit nicely within not only the Honda lineup, but the booming subcompact class, with lots of onboard technology, excellent packaging (including the company’s Magic Seat rear bench), and – we assume – a relatively affordable price point.
