Honda’s all-new Jazz will be launched next month to take on the Hyundai Elite i20 and the Volkswagen Polo in the premium hatchback segment. Here are our first impressions of the car
If you are one of the few owners of this car’s predecessor, you will get why the Jazz is such an important car for Honda and for its segment. The old Jazz was a lovely car, a bit ahead of its time, but offered the kind of practicality and space we’d not seen before on a hatchback in India. Not just in cabin, but boot space too. Honda coupled this practicality with a refined and peppy petrol engine, slick gearbox and light controls, making it the ideal car for the city. Well almost.
Success of any car in India is highly dependent on the amount of car you get for your money, and while the Jazz was much loved, it was expensive to buy. The Jazz came at a time when Honda was an established carmaker here but wasn’t as aggressive in the Indian context. A diesel engine wasn’t offered and parts localization was in the range of 60-70 percent. All that foreign content shot the price of the Jazz through the roof and the mindset was, why buy a hatchback when you can get a sedan for the same price.
The good news is that Honda has learnt its lesson and is now a company we can’t compare to the one that sold the Jazz a couple of years...read more »

Even when it was first launched, the Honda Jazz was quite an impressive product, but didn't quite do well on the sales charts mainly due to the price. The All new Jazz looks even more promising but where does it stand against the Hyundai Elite i20 and the Maruti Suzuki Swift?
The Honda Jazz is one of Honda’s most practical and spacious cars even if it’s not the bestselling. The old Jazz was well known for its flat floor, magic seats, simplistic design and of course the high price. The new Jazz echoes the philosophy of the old car minus the steep price tag. The new Jazz starts at Rs 5.99 lakh and tops out at Rs 9.32 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. The Honda hatchback is powered by the same 1.2-litre iVTEC petrol as before but with the addition of the 1.5-litre iDTEC diesel, the Jazz now has a diesel option as well.
Honda Jazz Exterior and Interior
Where the previous Jazz featured a rather rounded off and simplistic design, the current Jazz goes in for a more-sporty aesthetic. The blacked out central grille is flanked by sleek wraparound headlamps which sit above contoured bumpers and a shapely radiator grille. The car still looks quite fresh in that bright orange hue. Viewed from the side, the the shoulder line looks prominent as it sits below the massive windows and runs the length of the car before meeting at the helm of wraparound tail lamps. The diamond-cut 15-inch alloys complete the sporty aesthetic which are shod with 175/65 section tyres. The Jazz follows Honda’s machine minimum, man maximum philosophy and features a short bonnet and wheels at practically the four corners of the car to maximize the space inside the cabin.
The cabin of the Jazz is almost as spacious as the one on the City. The driver’s perch is height adjustable only on the top variants and the coveted magic seats being available on the VX variant only. The cabin is still quite flexible, the rear row can be folded for a relatively flat loading bay, the car offers 354 litres of boot space that can be increased 881 litres. Ingress and egress is easy as well. The cabin comes with a choice of two colours, beige and black, the black is again, available on the top-of-the line variant only. The 6.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system is reserved for the VX variant only, the V and SV get a 5.0-inch system and the S makes do with a simple manual audio system. Other cabin features include a climate control system which is available on the top two variants only, though the steering is only tilt adjustable it is a standard feature across the range. Power windows on all four doors also comes in as standard across the board. In terms of safety, front airbags are fitted as standard though ABS and EBD is not available on the petrol base and petrol S variants. It is also equipped with reversing camera in all variants SV and above, there are however no parking sensors,even as an option.
Honda Jazz Specifications
The Jazz is powered by two engines, a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol and a 1.5-litre 4- cylinder turbo diesel. The petrol makes 90PS of max power and 110Nm of peak torque and can be had with either a 5-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. The fuel efficiency for the petrol stands at 18.7kmpl for the manual and 19kmpl for the CVT. The diesel on the other hand makes 100PS of max power and 200Nm of peak torque. The engine can only be had with a 6-speed manual transmission and has a claimed fuel efficiency of 27.3kmpl.
Honda Jazz Variants
The petrol variants of the Jazz start from Rs 5.99 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 8.47 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi whereas the diesel variants are priced from Rs 7.36 lakh and go all the way up to 9.32 lakh. The CVT gearbox is available with the petrol variant only and also comes with steering mounted paddle shifters for manual control.
Honda Jazz Competitors
Hyundai Elite i20: The one that has it all! The Elite i20 brings a sense of class and features to this segment like no other. Premium build, loads of kit on offer, looks that turns heads and space for five. What more do ya need, eh?
Volkswagen Polo: Volkswagen’s Polo may not have set the sales charts on fire, but it has its own little fanclub. Primary reasons being the rock-solid build quality inside out, and the fun-to-drive engines in the GT variants. It might seem a bit dated to some, but we aren’t complaining just as yet!
Maruti Suzuki Baleno: A properly well-rounded package, the Baleno is hard to fault. It’s got the right mix of fun, practicality, tech and frugality.
Anyone looking for a practical, fuel efficient family car with a spacious cabin, reliability and doesn’t really are about the fun-to-drive factor, must look at the Jazz as a viable option. Though we think the petrol despite its lower fuel efficiency figure is the better option thanks to the refinement of the e iVTEC engine.
