Honda Malaysia introduces cheaper Jazz Grade S

Honda Malaysia has just introduced a new variant of the Jazz hatchback, labelled Grade S. Priced attractively at RM98,800, it slots in between the Jazz Hybrid and Jazz Grade V models.

When Honda Malaysia launched the Jazz Hybrid last March, it created a RM15,000 gap between the hybrid and conventionally powered Jazz. With the new Grade S variant, the gap between them is now down to just RM5,000, so those who refuse to jump on the hybrid band wagon now has a viable petrol alternative to fall back to, without having to fork out the (previously massive) price difference.

The Jazz Grade S comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, new front and rear bumpers, black mesh grille and blue-black interior upholstery. Compared to the Grade V, it loses the side sill garnish, exhaust pipe finisher, paddle shifters, cruise control and steering wheel audio controls. Mechanically it's identical to its petrol sibling, so the 118bhp/145Nm 1.5-litre engine and five-speed automatic gearbox remain unchanged.

    In Disney's shadow, homeless families struggle

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — When they moved from Georgia to the theme park playground of central Florida four years ago, Anthony and Candice Johnson found work at a barbecue restaurant and a 7-Eleven. Their combined salaries nevertheless fell short of what they needed to rent an apartment, so the couple and their two children have instead been hopping among cheap motel rooms along U.S. 192. …
