Here’s Your First Look At The Honda Jazz Facelift; India Launch On August 26

Honda’s updated premium hatchback will be a petrol-only offering


  • Pre-launch bookings for the facelifted Honda Jazz are open.
  • It will be offered with a petrol engine only; diesel engine has been axed.
  • It’s the only car in its segment to come with a sunroof.
  • The Honda Jazz facelift is likely to be priced from Rs 7.5 lakh (ex-showroom).

Honda Cars India is all set to launch the updated Jazz on August 26. It comes with a cosmetic update and a BS6 petrol engine. Bookings for the premium hatchback are open and you can reserve one via the carmaker’s official website. Now, shots of the Honda Jazz reaching dealerships have surfaced online, giving us a closer look at the updated car. 


So what are the cosmetic updates like? For starters, the Jazz’ fascia features a chrome mustache that looks similar to the fourth-gen City and is flanked by a pair of new LED headlamps. You also get a redesigned bumper that looks more muscular and comes with LED fog lamps. There are no changes to its profile and rear-end whatsoever.  


Not much has changed on the inside of the Jazz, but it is the only car in its segment to feature a sunroof. Features like a touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, keyless entry with push button start, steering mounted audio and cruise controls have been retained. On the safety front, it comes with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.  


Honda has now done away with the diesel engine that was offered in the BS4 Jazz. The facelifted Jazz will be a petrol-only model and will come with a BS6-compliant 1.2-litre petrol engine that should develop 90PS of power and 110Nm of torque. Just like before, it can be had with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT.  


Prices for the Honda Jazz will be announced on August 26 and we expect a starting price of Rs 7.5 lakh (ex-showroom). The main advantage of the Jazz is the spacious cabin and practical nature when pitched against the Hyundai Elite i20, Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Tata Altroz.
