Almost a year ago, Honda unveiled the updated Jazz at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show. The Indian launch of the facelifted Jazz premium hatchback is expected to take place in the latter half of this month. So let’s talk about this hatch in detail. Shall we?
So from the outside, the Honda Jazz gets an all-new front bumper with larger air intake along with a slightly different design for the fog lamp housing. The grille now looks more stylish and goes completely with the bumper. At the rear, the hot hatch gets subtle styling tweaks and its LED tail-lamps get a mild redesign. The alloy wheels are re-designed too, looks a bit similar to the ones seen on the all new Amaze. The top-end variant is expected to get black alloy wheels to make the car look more sporty.
The Jazz will come equipped with features like automatic headlamps and updated infotainment system like the one seen in the Honda City.
The car will remain mechanically identical, i.e., it will keep running on the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engine options. With the Jazz, Honda is aiming to take on the recently refreshed Hyundai i20 and the Maruti Baleno in the Indian market. Unlike the Amaze, Honda will not offer a diesel-CVT variant on the Jazz hatchback.
