Mk1/Mk2, GD/GE explained.
« on: May 31, 2010, 09:17:31 PM »
This is a quick guide to the different generations of Honda Jazz.

Firstly, the Honda Jazz is sold as the Honda Fit in some countries including Japan, United States and Canada. It is essentially the same car with minor differences to suit local tastes and regulations.

In order to maintain consistency with other Honda Jazz/Fit forums and owners' clubs across the world, we consider the 2002-2008 Honda Jazz as the first generation Honda Jazz and we ignore any other Honda models that have used the Jazz name prior to 2002. These include the 1984-86 Honda Jazz/City and the Japanese market Honda Jazz from the 90s that is in actual fact a rebadged Vauxhall Frontera (!)

Honda Jazz Mk1 (“GD”)
2002 to 2008
1.2 or 1.4-litre i-DSi 8 valve engines
Manual or CVT gearbox

Honda Jazz Mk2 (“GE”)
1.2 or 1.4-litre i-VTEC 16 valve engines or 1.3-litres petrol/electric hybrid.
Manual, i-SHIFT ('08 to '11) or CVT ('11-on) gearbox.

Honda Jazz Mk3 ("GK")
1.3-litre 16 valve engine, manual or CVT transmission.
