While the rest of the world still moon over cars that debuted at the Bangkok and Manila International Auto Show, two cars caught our eye which could indicate that Honda thinks the future lies in China. The Honda Concept C and Concept S were unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Yes, we're bringing this news to you a year late because back then, we didn't think much of the two concepts. It's only now that we realize that these could be the next generation Civic and Jazz.

Well, whaddya know? Honda is now the latest victim of what we'd like to call the “Goldilocks syndrome.” Not too big and not too small, they've created a compact crossover that fits the bill just right, and it's something they'd simply like to call the “Urban SUV Concept.”
Making its world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, this small SUV is based on Honda's well-received and strong selling Global Compact Series platform, from which both the Jazz and City are derived. Their philosophy behind the Urban SUV Concept is that it will be their next wave of smart, fuel-efficient, and fun to drive vehicles - traits that Hondas of today are already well known for. Still, Honda feels it's the answer for a new wave of road users with “active lifestyles” (Are they hinting that we're starting to get a bit too sedentary?).

Nope. This is not your typical stock Honda Jazz with a Mugen decal roaming the streets. Neither are its clustered foglamps and flared wheel arches just aesthetics for a car show. What you see here is a 245 horsepower Mugen-tuned Jazz that was re-engineered for rally racing. J.A.S Motorsports from Italy was responsible for turning the humble Jazz hatchback into a full-bred rally machine and was specifically built to compete in the 2012 Bosch Australian Rally Championship (ARC).
Underneath the hood is a 2.0L engine sourced from Mugen that pumps out a whopping 245 horsepower and 193 Nm of torque with a 9,000 rpm rev limit. While it maintains its front wheel drivetrain, this could very well be the fastest Jazz in the world! The J.A.S. Motorsports Jazz rally car will run under the Group 2 (G2) specifications of the Australian Rally Championship and will be driven by Mark Pedder with co-pilot by Claire Ryan, both of which are seasoned motorsports drivers. They will be joined by veterans Eli Evans and Glen Weston in a sister Jazz rally car, run by the Evans Motorsport team.
