Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

India-bound in 2015.

The 2015 Honda Jazz which was launched in China earlier this year is in attendance at the Guangzhou Auto Show 2014 alongside the new Vezel and XR-V crossovers.

Manufactured by the Guangzhou-Honda JV, the Fit for the Chinese market is available with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine which puts out a healthy 130 hp at 6,600 rpm and 155 Nm of torque at 4,600 rpm. The drive is transferred to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox or a CVT.

The premium hatchback is suspended by McPherson struts upfront and torsion-beam setup at the rear. The front wheels are retarded by discs while the rear makes do with standard drums.

Competition to the Fit in China comes from the likes of VW Polo, Ford Fiesta hatchback and Toyota Yaris L.
