The BS6 Jazz also gets a few more features over the outgoing car, some of which have been added to the base and mid-spec trims as well. The BS6 Honda Jazz will be available in three variants – V, VX and ZX – and here are the features that are new on each variant.
Honda Jazz V
The base V variant of the Honda Jazz gets a revised front grille with separate LED DRLs (different from the top-spec trim), rear parking sensors, chrome ring on steering-mounted controls, and a jack-knife retractable key. The cruise control feature now has been made standard across the range which was previously only available on the automatic variants. It is thus now available even on the base manual variant. Apart from that, the base V variant of the Jazz carries forward other features from before like LED tail lamps, a 5-inch entertainment system with Bluetooth connectivity, steering-mounted audio control, and keyless entry with push button stop/start.
Honda Jazz VX

It additional now gets a soft touchpad dashboard and few more features that were previously only available on the automatic variants like Honda’s Smart Key system with push button stop/start. The mid-spec VX trim otherwise continues with features such as the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, voice commands, electrically folding ORVMs, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Honda Jazz ZX
The top-spec ZX variant of the Jazz is where the new changes are most visible. On the outside, the it is the ZX variant that comes with the new all-LED headlamps with LED DRLs, the new LED front fog lamps and of course, the one-touch electric sunroof as well. In fact, the Honda Jazz is now the only hatchback in the segment to come with a sunroof. The visual differences on the outside also make it look like a much more modern hatchback.
