Will the 2014 Honda Jazz 'Fit' be in showrooms by March 2014?

I read in the Telegraph motoring section of a new Honda Jazz model called ‘Fit’, which will be on sale in 2014. After reading your high praise of the Jazz in 2004 I purchased one and have changed it for another every three years. I am now at the stage of whether to buy another current model Jazz or wait for the new one. Do you think it could possibly be in the dealers showrooms by March 2014 for the new 14 plate?

It is now on sale in the Far East and USA, but because UK Jazzes are built at Swindon, the old model could carry on until next Spring. The Jazz was always called the 'Fit' in the Far East, but it could not be called the 'Fit' in Europe and the USA because 'Fit' is Swedish for a part of the female anatomy and the name might cause offence.
