Skoda offers financing deals, Vettel gets 'Vettel Infiniti' for his birthday, new Honda Jazz ES Plus, GM and Honda to share fuel cell tech
2 July 2013

Skoda has announced it will offer zero per cent interest plans on its range of cars. Deals start at £69 per month for the Citigo supermini, while the new Octavia is available for £149 per month. The offers are based on a PCP (Personal Contract Purchase), and benefit from three years' free servicing. 

Triple F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel has taken delivery of his new company car, an Infiniti FX Vettel Edition, on the eve of his 26th birthday. The special edition, which was delivered to his home in Switzerland, is limited to a run of 150 cars.

Honda has announced a new trim level for its Jazz supermini. The ES Plus replaces the ES model and includes alloy wheels, cruise control and privacy glass as standard. With the 1.4 i-VTEC engine, it will be available from £14,995.

GM and Honda are to collaborate on fuel cell systems and hydrogen storage technologies. While Honda plans to launch its second-generation fuel cell car in the USA and Japan in 2015, GM is yet to announce any hydrogen-fuelled models.

Our Verdict

Honda Jazz

The Honda Jazz is a super-practical supermini that’s a doddle to drive and own, but lacking in excitement

Privacy glass is becoming as common (and as pointless) as those "Baby On Board" signs in cars where there clearly isn't one ...

but sadly unlike the 'baby on board' sign, you cant easily throw the privacy glass away. By making it standard do they really expect to attact more customers than they put off?

I think privacy glass is the easiest way to cheapen the look of your car. But so many manufacturers give you no choice as to whether you have it or not, and the after market tinting services seem to attract plenty of business, so maybe you and I are in the minority.

Stop being so boring. Now your complaining about privacy glass. Why don't you buy some steel wheels, and some plastic hub caps. You don't buy a new car, because it looks crap. Secondly privacy glass offers protection from sunlight rays, and an added level of security.
