    I understand that this will address the initial lag when starting from a full stop. That's my issue with the current Jazz CVT, when caught in a stop and go traffic,- reason why I need to step on the gas pedal harder and consequently step on the brake pedal harder so that I do not lose lane position ....

    now thats a big improvement from our current GDs.
    I bet this'll sell really well.
    Is this by "increased by or to 160%", bro.?

    The wheelbase has been stretched by 50mm(1.9 inches) and now measures 2500mm(98.4 inches).

    From my point of view, the structure of the front face looks more like the Toyota Yaris now....

    Impressive too but I worry that this weight-saving came at the expense of the spare tire. JDM GE Fits are shod with run-flat tires; the old spare tire well in the back has become an extension of the rear load bay for deep loads.
    Uh-oh.

    To me, that is also a big concern.... I may be old-schooled, but a spare tire will always be a psychological insurance for me....

    They call it ULTR luggage...
    Isn't that extra space under the trunk floor/carpet big enough to hold a spare tire or space saver?




    Maybe the ASEAN Jazz version might have a spare tire, I guess we'll find out in a few months.

    This is definitely going to be my next car. Ang ganda talaga...pag-iipunan ko ito...

    OT: Nice move of Honda for the civic...they increased the price a bit but they put in ABS in the V model.

    Ngayon hindi nako malilito kung civic or Jazz..hehe.

    I believe it should be "increased BY 160%."

    With newer cars nowadays, this is a normal development over their predecessors, especially those that prioritize handling.

    What will happen to the spare tire if this ULTR luggage is adopted for the new model? Runflat?

    The current model's torsion beam rear axle setup is compact enough to provide additional room for a few things under the rear subframe so maybe the ULTR utilizes this space, but I hope there still is room for the spare.

    Like I mentioned, the ULTR luggage setup just makes use of the old spare tire well of the GD Jazz. Based on diagrams and photos I've seen, if Honda so chooses, it can easily convert this "deep" luggage area back into a spare tire well.

    It would be wise for Honda to avoid run-flats in the Philippines as they're very expensive tires to replace. As of this writing, tires with normal sidewalls are expensive enough as they are.

    I can't wait for it to come in.

    So that secondhand first-gens will finally depreciate. I still want a secondhand Jazz! :hysterical:
