Honda is readying an India launch of its facelifted Jazz premium hatchback, which is expected to take place in the latter half of this month. The updated Jazz was first unveiled almost a year ago and made its public debut at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show.
On the outside, the refreshed Honda Jazz features an all-new front bumper with larger air intake along with a slightly different design for the fog lamp housing. The grille gets styling revisions, too, which now brings it more in line with newer Honda models. At the back, the car gets subtle styling tweaks and its LED tail-lamps get a mild redesign. The alloy wheels get a new design as well, which look a bit similar to the ones seen on the new Amaze. The top-spec trim is expected to get black alloy wheels to make the car look sporty.
The Jazz will come with equipment like automatic headlamps and an updated infotainment system which is similar to the one seen in the current-gen Honda City.
The car will not get any mechanical updates, which means the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engine options will continue, as is. The Jazz will take on the recently refreshed Hyundai i20 and the Maruti Baleno in the Indian market. Unlike the Amaze, Honda will not offer a diesel-CVT variant on the Jazz hatchback.
