Honda Australia have confirmed it will offer stability control as a standard feature in the City and Jazz. In Honda's terms, it is known as Vehicle Stability Assist. These two cars will have an advantage over others in the range, as it offers skid stopping technology.
The feature is not available anywhere in this segment not even as a cost option. The Jazz in UK is already updated with a VSA in the higher end models and you have to spend some extra to get the feature in the base model.
The Jazz has already achieved a 4-star ANCAP safety rating and the City is yet to be tested. The Jazz earlier received a 5 star rating from Euro NCAP.
What brings smile on Honda customers' face is that the company plans to bring this feature across the range with no extra charges by late 2010.
