New Honda Jazz review by AutoPortal India

It is not that India has not seen the Jazz from Honda. Launched in 2009, Honda had to discontinue with the car due to its increased price structure. Since then, Honda has never had a contender in the premium end of the hatchback market. Honda unveiled the Honda Jazz hatchback during the 2014 Auto Expo which was held in Delhi.

The 2015 Honda Jazz is an all-new model that is built on a new platform. Due on 2015 the 8th of July, the New Honda Jazz reviews are that the Jazz comes with a racier styling and more interior space

On the exterior front, the Jazz does seem to share quite a bit with the Honda City. The huge angular headlights that fuse into the multi-element grille is very attractive. There is a belt line that originates at the front doors and progressively widens towards the large 3D-effect tail-lights. The tail comes embellished with reflectors that flank the windscreen and a wide band of chrome that runs along the width of the boot. Honda has kept the mini MPV look intact and it is nicely styled.

The Jazz is a spacious car with ample head, leg and shoulder room for five occupants. The seats split, fold flat and flip upwards to make space for cargo. Only available on the top-end trim level this feature enables the cargo space to increase to 881 litres. The large central screen combined with the touch screen AC controls and the start-stop button will also make an appearance on the Jazz.

The top VX trim gets safety features like a i-SRS airbag system for the driver and a SRS air bag system for the passenger, hill start assist function, idling stop system, emergency stop signal and VSA (ABS + TCS + sideslip suppression).

Dealers of Honda Cars India have officially started accepting bookings for the new Jazz for Rs 51,000. Going up against premium hatchbacks like the Hyundai i20, Volkswagen Polo and Maruti Suzuki’s upcoming YRA, the Jazz is expected to be priced between Rs 6-8.5 lakhs.

The Jazz will now be available with a diesel engine. The diesel engine is the same 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine found on the Amaze and City. Peak power is 98.6 bhp at 3600 rpm and peak torque is 20.3 kgm at 1750 rpm.
