Celebrating the best of the Honda Jazz at FitFest 4

If one were to describe the Honda Jazz in three words, it would be dependable, reliable and practical. Sounds like every other B-segment hatchback out there then. And yet, for four years running, owners of this humble hatchback continue to flock to Megatent for FitFest - with this year being no exception.

With over 1,600 active members, this year's FitFest saw members from the northernmost and southernmost parts of Luzon join the grand get together. The bulk of the Jazzes on display were courtesy of Initial GD, representing the first generation, GE Garage for the second generation and GK Nation for the third generation. Other clubs were present too, with their respective members flaunting their dressed up Jazzes.

Of course, the event wasn't just about the Honda Jazz. There was also a strong showing from the Honda Mobilio Club of the Philippines and the two major Honda CR-V groups, a strong representation of the marque's long-running crossover and new MPV.
