Honda’s reborn Jazz gets several updates, including design changes on the outside and a spruced-up cabin stuffed with equipments for making it snugger. Despite underpinning a new platform and embodying various styling changes, the Jazz is evidently reminiscent of the older one, which implies that the basic silhouette of the premium hatchback remains unchanged. Though, quite contrary to it, Jazz’s version still has a lot on offing, which was missing earlier and keeps your interest alive in it. One of the most prominent changes made to the nose is the front grille that meets seamlessly with the headlights, thus making it appear like a single unit. Also, the strong beltline stretched until the tail lights accentuates the side profile and renders the much-required assertiveness to the hatchback.
The cabin offers generous space. That said, it is undoubtedly one of the most spacious hatchbacks in the B segment, offering ample leg room, head space and shoulder space even to the passengers sitting at the rear. A host of features have been embedded inside, totally complementing the large cabin space and hence upping the practicality of the cabin.
One of the other major additions made to the new Jazz is the availability of a diesel unit in the model series, which was missing earlier. The 1.5-litre i-DTEC has been put on duty other than the 1.2-litre petrol motor. There is also an option for a CVT gearbox along with manual transmission available only on the petrol variant. The Honda Jazz line-up comprises total 12 variants, including 5 manual trims in petrol and diesel guise each, and 2 CVT variants offered on the S and V petrol trims. One of the reasons behind the failure of the older version was the Honda Jazz price, which, despite various revisions, could not lure Indian customers. Hence, this time, the company has placed the price of Honda Jazz in India very smartly.
