Honda has fully revealedthefaceliftedJazzahead of its launch in India in the coming weeks. It has also commencedpre-bookingsof the updated hatchback at a token amount of Rs 21,000 via an authorised dealership. This reduces to Rs 5,000 if you book it under the‘Honda from Home’ platform on the carmaker’s website.
It features cosmetic updates like a revised front end, sporiter bumpers, and new LED headlamps and fog lamps.The cabin remains as it is, but it will get asegment-first sunroof among other feature additions.Under the hood, the Jazz retains its 1.2-litre petrol engine albeit with a BS6 upgrade. The1.5-litre diesel engine will be axed from the Jazz lineup. It willcontinue to be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission and a CVT.
The current Honda Jazz is sold at Rs 7.45 lakh to Rs 9.41 lakh (ex-showroom). Expect the updated Jazz to be sold at a premium over its predecessor owing to the upgrades on offer. It will compete against the likes of theMaruti Suzuki Baleno,Hyundai Elite i20,Toyota Glanza, and theTata Altroz.

Overall its a nice car.most of my travel alone and 5%with family & friends with self driving with minimal maintenance.i love it.
excellent family car, doesn't have any feature but all useful features. Happily using SV-MT trim for almost 13 Years.
This car offers all the baseline and advanced features if you pick top model.. this is a very practical car in varioud means also very soacious and comfortable.
this is my second Jazz. It's experience is wonderful . because whatever you need for a small size it is there such as nice boot and its settings are practical suit to everyone.Overall it is good car
4.5 overall rating for Jazz. Mileage and speed to be better, interiors can be improved further. My personal point of view, but saying this will also say that the car is very comfortable in all sense, spacious and truly a family car
The current Jazz offered in both petrol and diesel variants is very pricey compared to its rivals. The only value plus points of Jazz are well refined 1.2 L petrol engine(+), CVT(++) and cabin/ boot space(+++). The attractive feature is rear tail LED lamps. The body built of the Jazz is sturdy and seems a real metal. All other specifications and features of Jazz fall far behind the competition. Even top variants do not get: R16 tyres, Auto head lamps, Rain sensing wipers, Rear head rests, Rear AC, DRLs, LED-projector head lamps, Cooled glove box, Rear arm rest and IVRS auto dimming that are offered on Altroz, i20, Baleno, Kwid, Micra etc.The main dis-advantages of Jazz are: too many blind spots, expensive service costs (with horrible 6 month interval), touch AC- not easy to set while driving, dual horn may not be reachable to small palms (so you have to remove one hand from steering to use the horn), spare tyre is R14 steel and front arm rest which is positioned too low to use. In some areas, after sales-service is also not professional. There are some other features in the top variants which are of rear use on Indian roads like cruise control and paddle shifts (that gives a sporty feeling though).Of course Honda dedicated years on cosmetic changes like addition of DRLs, LED projectors (this year), push start, rear LED tail lamps, Digipad 2.0, capacitive touch door handles (Last year) etc.6 x bottle holders are standard across all the variants of JAZZ (petrol and Diesel). No worries.For a solid built hatchback with best in market auto-transmission(CVT), with refined engine and lots of space inside cabin and as well boot space I suggest you go for Jazz. If you are looking for a manual transmission car.....m m m m m.
I have the automatic and it's for my daughter. It's a well engineered petrol vehicle, the automatic is fine but not peppy enough. If you are looking to overtake at high double digits on a highway, you really have to rev it up. What's disappointing is the lack of nice features that are engineered in but not made functional. It has a provision for keyless but not enabled. Of the two sets of keys - one has remote door opening the other is a standard insert and turn. The turn indicators are little cheap, plastic inserts on sides though the rear view mirrors have a notch for the same. The cabin is drab and unimaginative. Anyone with an i20 experience will feel the difference. For its price it is highly underscored. Drive is fine though torque build up is poor. True to Honda petrol, the car has never given me any issues at all over the last 4.5 years. It has decent enough storage (400L + I think) and good for long drives. Overall solid, functional but completely unimaginative and low featured.
I am driving my Jazz since 2015 and even till now, it seems same feeling. Its been 4.5 years and i drove more than 80 thousand KM . but believe me, drive quality, comfort, glass view are really good. On the highway, we get 20+ average ( need to drive below 100) and in city its 18 KMPL( with A/C) . The maintenance cost is coming around 8 to 9 thousand. So after 4.5 year i can say that i am a proude owner of such a reliable car.
This is my first car, 5 years now. Style : its a JAZZ OrangeSafety : 5*Comfort : have just one issue, bumpy on bad roads for back seaters, that suspension [ but i switched to michelin energy mx2 80% problem solved ], wondering why they are not stock. Mileage : 12kmpl city, 16-17kmpl highway with max speed 100 [without AC 19 kmpl], cost is a premium, but you get what you pay. I am satisfied customer.thank you honda ..!
A good family car. Always loved Honda Jazz. Good on space and comfort. Engine is super refined. The ivtec is silent and works like a charm. The missing rear seat head rests and magic seats on the top VX CVT trim is really disappointing. Still the love for Jazz mad me go ahead with it and own one. Mileage in city is around 10 to 11 kmpl as Jazz drinks fuel handsomely. However out on the highway it returns a decent 15 to 16 kmpl. I just did it"s second free service and it"s 3000 kms run on board. So far it"s good except the mileage in the city which could be a lil more. Overall I would give it 3.5/5. A good overall purchase.
Do a few new chords make the 2018 Jazz sing a new tune?
