New Honda Jazz,compact SUV and new City all in the making
The not so small car Honda Jazz certainly has more than hatchback proportions and space. Sensing this trait, Honda seems to in the process of developing a new Honda SUV based on the Jazz. Meanwhile, the car maker will be launching a new Jazz next year. Since the new SUV by Honda will have proportions derived from Jazz, it will be a compact SUV and it will take another two years before one can hear something concrete about the SUV. Media reports suggest that the Jazz based SUV will be focusing Europe and India. Meanwhile, experts believe that if Honda comes up with a diesel SUV, it will receive a grand welcome in India but if it comes out to be another petrol car then nothing can be said and it might succumb to the same fate as the Honda City, Honda Brio and other Honda cars in India.
The Honda Jazz SUV price and specification details etc are unavailable and it is still a far guess. Preliminary reports suggest that the SUV by Honda will be available in diesel, petrol and hybrid models. The new SUV seems too much possible as the Jazz hatchback is currently offering lots of space and SUV like character to the world. It will not be an uphill task for the car maker to infuse some more SUV traits in it and come up with a true Honda SUV. Also, compact SUVs have recently taken over the market in India and Europe and as per reports; these smaller SUVs are a big hit following their price and manageable size.
The new platform on which the Jazz hatchback SUV will be based and the new Jazz will take its avatar will also be the one that will be giving birth to new Honda City as well. This will all be possible in another three years and sources say that the new platform will become the global platform that will underpin a lot of Honda cars.
