The Honda Jazz has been launched in India in its BS6 avatar. It was officially unveiled a couple of weeks ago when Honda started accepting pre-bookings for its premium hatchback.
The 2020 Honda Jazz facelift comes with several exterior and interior updates, a BS6-compliant engine, and a new top-spec ZX variant. The new Honda Jazz 2020 will rival the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, Tata Altroz, Toyota Glanza, and Volkswagen Polo.
All authorised Honda dealerships started to accept pre-bookings for the new BS6 complaint Jazz in India on August 10. HCIL announced that dealerships were accepting bookings for a token amount of Rs 21,000. However, the automaker mentioned that if you use the ‘Honda from Home’ online platform, you can book the New Honda Jazz for a much smaller amount of Rs 5,000.
2020 Honda Jazz facelift features, specifications:
- The new Jazz comes equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, a multi-view rearview camera, rear parking sensors, impact mitigation front headrests, engine immobiliser, and pedestrian Injury Mitigation technology.
- Apart from the mild restyling, the biggest addition to the facelifted Jazz is the sunroof.
- It is equipped with features like auto AC, cruise control, touchscreen infotainment system, and push-button start-stop along with a dual-tone theme.
- Powering the new Jazz facelift is a BS6-compliant, 1.2-litre, i-VTEC petrol engine that develops a maximum power of 90PS and a peak torque of 110Nm.
- The transmission options include a 5-speed MT and a 7-speed CVT automatic. The claimed mileage for the Jazz MT is 16.6kmpl, while it is 17.1kmpl for the Jazz CVT.
- HCIL claims that the petrol automatic with the CVT consists of 70% of the sales of the model. Now with the diesel engine out of the picture entirely, that share is expected to increase even further.
