“I have been researching the market for a second car for my family," said Aneesa. "I was impressed with the sport hybrid system ... the flexible cargo space makes this vehicle very practical for family outings.”

Malaysia is the only country outside of Japan to introduce Honda’s new Intelligent Dual-Clutch Drive Hybrid system (i-DCD) that is found in the current Jazz. In Japan, close to 865,000 units of hybrid vehicles equipped with i-DCD system has been sold as of June. The technology dates back to 1999. Over 525,000 units of the Jazz Hybrid have been sold globally to date.
