Honda has officially announced in a statement that the 2014 Honda Jazz (2014 Honda Fit for some parts of the world) would go on sale in Japan come September.

The official statement is inline with all our previous reports that the all new Jazz would be shown to the world by the end of this year itself.

The statement also says that Honda has already begun production at this plant. Does that mean that first few units of the all new Jazz have already started rolling off the assembly line?

Honda says that the plant will produce the “World’s Eco-Friendliest products” indicating that the Jazz’s claimed 36km/l fuel efficiency could prove to be true. The production capacity of this plant is rated at 250,000 units per annum.

Coming to the most important question, when will India get to see the new Jazz? Honda India is expected to launch the all new Jazz in the country in early 2014. The Jazz this time around will also be available with a diesel engine.

    Honda Jazz ( FIT in US ) looks to have undergone a genetic change. It would be good vehicle for India where little longer hatchback leading towards estate wagon would sell good numbers.
    An addition of roof rails would add to its beauty

    My wishlist specifications would be as follows

    1.4 to 1.5 Ltr / 4 Cylinder iv-tech / Petrol Motor / East-West Mounted
    Front Wheel Drive
    5/6 Speed Manual & Auto transmission
    Pull Type Door Handles
    Lowheight Roofrails
    Driver Aligned instrument cluster
    Latest Infotainment equipment
    Rear Wash, Wipe & Defogger
    Full length Side Rub Rails

    Honda is amazingly fast with regards to product development. I’m not surprised at all with them launching the car in Sep 13 ! The Indian journey might start soon as well. Remember they launched the Amaze without any pre release hype, it appeared from nowhere, there were no spy shot stories for months and years. It just came out of the blue. The 2014 Jazz story could be something similar 🙂
