Drive your dream with Bowater Honda

Win a Jazz with Bowater Honda. Now that is something to sing about!

Written by Media Manager.

2013 honda jazz hybrid

Bowater Honda are very excited about the brand new Honda Jazz Hybrid. It is a remarkable little car - so easy to drive, so easy to park, and now even easier on the wallet with a penny pinching hybrid model new onto the market.

Honda are very proud of all their Jazz. There is an auto and manual version of the Jazz S, two different engine sizes to chose from, as well as the Jazz Sport, and now the Jazz Hybrid. Overall they are a bunch of snappy little numbers that will get you moving!
They not only look great, but are very easy on the petrol, making them a perfect around town car. Not only that but they also come complete with the wonderful Honda Magic Seats system - a unique way of creating a vast amount of storage and cargo space, allowing you to carry things a lot bigger than you would think you could fit it!

Honda have decided to reward those that take the opportunity to test drive the Honda Jazz with the chance to win one!  Simply take a test drive of any model Honda Jazz between 15 May 2013 and 31 October 2013 and we will automatically enter you into the draw to win a brand new Honda Jazz, any model of your choice!

Being a refugee is no barrier to keeping your car on the road.
There is a wonderful saying that you can give a man a fish and that will feed him for a day, but if you teach that man HOW to fish, you will feed him for a lifetime.

A group of former refugees now have some valuable skills to keep their vehicles on the road thanks to Bowater Honda, and in particular our Service Technician Marty Stevenson. For the second time in 12 months he has stepped up and volunteered his time to teach a fresh and diverse group some valuable basic vehicle skills.

Honda adds hybrid to all that Jazz

 UNDER $30,000: The Honda Jazz hybrid's price should be sufficient to attract plenty of attention.


It doesn't seem that long ago - less than a year ago, in fact - that the motoring media was recording the fact that the price of hybrid cars had reduced to just above $30,000.

That price had been achieved by the Toyota Prius C, a small five-door hatch that entered the market for $30,990 for a steel-wheeled entry model through to $34,990 for a more highly specified s-Tech version.

Those prices were pretty impressive, the motoring media mused. They were certainly a lot less than the other hybrid fare available in this country, which ranged from $35,990 for a three-door Honda Insight through to $65,000 for a loaded Prius V wagon.

But now Honda New Zealand has gone one step better via introduction of a hybrid version of its Jazz hatch for under $30,000. Granted, it's only 10 bucks under at $29,990, but strategically it's all very significant because the car has broken through that magic mark.

Honda gives away another $2500 to local family

Written by Media Manager.

Local Upper Moutere couple Colin & Ruth Roberts have struck it lucky, to the tune of a cheque for $2500 from Honda New Zealand.

What did they have to do to win this sizable small fortune? Just take the all new Honda Euro Civic for a test drive. That is all.

Bowater Honda Sales Manager Matt Enright presents the $2500 Cheque to Colin and Ruth Roberts.

The Roberts have been going through the process of upgrading their 2009 Honda Civic Sedan, so thought it best that they come in and give the new Honda Civic Euro a go as well. Aren't they lucky that they did, and they are in the draw to win a brand new Honda Civic Euro as well!
