A special Jazz souvenir was given to the invited Honda owners / guests upon registration during the launching of all-new Jazz at Happy Motoring's showrooms on Friday, 19 Dec 2008 and Saturday, 20 Dec 2008.
The 1st generation Jazz launched in Japan in 2001, has been an outstanding best-seller for Honda. Customers simply love the Jazz because of its size, design, versatility and interior spaciousness which were the best in its class. The 5-door hatchback gained fantastic customer acceptance in about 115 countries worldwide with global sales now exceeding 2.2 million units.
In Brunei, when the Jazz made its appearance five year ago, the market’s initial response was overwhelming! The Jazz became the talk of the town and drew interest from young people and the young-at-heart.
Last year, Jazz was the top seller of all the Honda sold in Brunei!
