The gorgeous four door offering will not only tempt the frugal among us, but will finally offer the style conscious an attractive alternative in the light-sedan segment.
The Thai built offering features a 1.5 litre i-VTEC four-cylinder engine producing 88kW and is said to promote a relaxing interior feel whilst placing an emphasis on driving smoothness - watch out Civic!
Meanwhile over at the Ford stable, the new Fiesta hatch will take centre stage as the "Kinetic" designed three and five door models make their debut down under.
The German designed and developed Fiesta is powered by a 1.6 litre DOHC Duratec four-cylinder engine which Ford says is good for 6.1 litres per 100km combined average (when fitted with a manual transmission). For the budget savvy, Fiesta also comes with a 1.4 litre power plant with dedicated automatic in a similar vein to Nissan's current Micra.
The new Jazz and Fiesta are among 40 new production models and concept designs being unveiled when the Australian International Motor Show opens at Sydney's Darling Harbour on October 9. CarAdvice will of course be in attendance to bring you complete coverage.
