Specs and Variants
Unlike the last generation Jazz, which was sold only withe a petrol engine, the new model will be sold in India with a sufficiently potent oil-burner. That said, buyers of the new gen Jazz will also get to choose between two petrol motors! Here is the list of engine options –
- 1.2-litre i-VTEC, Four-cylinder petrol engine with 90 PS-110 Nm
- 1.5-litre i-DTEC, Four-cylinder diesel engine with 100 PS-200 Nm.
The petrol engine will get an optional CVT.
While the diesel trims will include – E-MT, S-MT, SV-MT, V-MT and VX-MT, expect similar petrol trims, along with a couple of automatic models thrown into the mix.
The new Honda Jazz is based on the same platform as the latest generation Honda City sedan. While the new Honda Jazz can’t be mistaken for any other car, the new design cues go on to ensure that it looks sufficiently modern. It boasts of an all-new design, both inside and out! However, it does retain a slightly tallboy architecture, along with a slightly cab forward design. On the inside, it shares quite a few panels, including the dashboard, with the City sedan.
