Viral on social media photos of the latest Honda Jazz production. The photo shows employees at the Honda factory posing with the ultimate production Honda Jazz.

Honda Jazz is no longer sold in Indonesia. Instead, Honda launched the Honda City Hatchback which fills the same segment.
During its work, the Honda Jazz has four generations. The first generation, the Honda Jazz or Honda Fit was launched in Japan in June 2001. At that time, the Honda Jazz carried a 1.5 liter i-DSI and 1.5 liter VTEC engine with a CVT transmission and a 5-speed manual choice.
In the second generation (2008-2014), the Honda Jazz appears with a new design. At that time, the Honda Jazz came with a choice of 5-speed manual transmission and 5-speed automatic. And in July 2012, Honda launched the Honda Jazz Hybrid.
In 2014, the third generation Honda Jazz launched. The car uses a 1.5 liter i-VTEC 4 cylinder engine. The engine is mated to a CVT transmission.
Finally, Honda launched the fourth generation Jazz in Japan. The car, which is sold under the name Honda Fit in Japan, comes with an all-new design. Its appearance that leaves a sporty impression makes Honda not sell the latest Jazz in Indonesia. Honda prefers to launch the City Hatchback rather than bringing the new Jazz that rolled out at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

In the following years, sales of the Honda Jazz were in the range of 15 thousand to 27 thousand units.
