HONDA AUSTRALIA has announced that the Honda Jazz and City will be fitted with stability control as standard from late next year onwards.

When we tested a Honda City VTi-L last month, we thought it an unusual oversight that electronic stability control (or Vehicle Stability Assist, as Honda calls it) was not available anywhere in the range, even as a cost option.

Given both cars share the same platform and drivetrain setup, the Jazz suffers from the same omission and has attracted some negative press because of it.

However, Honda Australia has now confirmed that the Jazz and City will benefit from the skid-stopping technology from late 2010 onwards, when VSA will become standard equipment across both line-ups.

honda_jazz_vsaThe base model Jazz GLi currently has a four-star ANCAP safety rating, while the Honda City has yet to be tested by ANCAP.

The Jazz is currently available in the UK with VSA as standard on upper spec models, while lower-rung variants are able to be optioned with it as a cost extra.

Honda Australia's plan to make it available across the range at no additional expense is commendable, but the delay in its roll-out has perplexed some in the road-safety community.

But, as the old adage goes, it's better late than never.
