Pros&Cons: The new Honda Jazz decoded in 10 points


Pros:


1) Honda Jazz is all new avatar of previous model. One of the key USP of this Jazz is that its about 30% cheaper than its predecessor; Rs 5.30 Lakhs - 8.59 Lakhs (Ex showroom price, Delhi)

2) For the first time Honda Jazz will be available in both variants – Petrol & Diesel



3) Jazz comes in 5 trims so that you can make ample choices which suits your travel needs

4) Look wise – it comes with a new transformation i.e. global Civic-like headlamps, sleek grille and and new bumper with large air-vents



5) Jazz's cabin now looks quite identical to the City with similar looking dashboard and plastic quality

6) The new Jazz sports a quite spacious cabin, as a result of extended wheelbase that improves knee-room and leg room

7) Jazz comes with two engine options - 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel and the 1.2-litre iVTEC petrol churning out 89 bhp & 99 bhp respectively

8) Transmission options includes a powerful 5-speed manual and 5-speed CVT gearbox with the petrol variant, and a 6-speed manual gearbox with the diesel variant



9) Jazz comes loaded with Infotainment system with 6.2-inch touch-sensitive display & Navigation system with Steering mounted controls

10) Other key features includes - Multi-function steering wheel, Electronic brakeforce distribution system (EBD), Anti-lock braking system (ABS)

Cons:



1) The ground clearance is better than its earlier version, however it is still less compared to Suzuki Swift

2) One would have expected DRL ( Day time running LEDs) especially with upper variants, which is missing in this model

3) The fuel efficiency as claimed by new Honda Jazz is 27.3 KM/L which is an aberration. The car may not deliver mileage in north of 12-14 KM/L with AC ON in city conditions



4) Earlier Jazz really suffered due to heavy reliance on spare parts which had to be imported from Japan, and hence servicing & repair used to take ample time. We are not sure, if this Jazz will go through same fate or not

5) In terms of power we would have expected larger BHP churnout at least in the range of 110+ which is a disappointment in this model
