The Honda Jazz facelift made its global debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The premium hatchback offering is already on sale in international markets.
The new 2018 Honda Jazz comes with minor cosmetic changes. This includes a restyled front, with updates on its grille and bumpers. The Jazz will also come with new 16-inch alloy wheels.
Honda is also expected to offer LED Daytime Running Lights on the new-generation Jazz.
Inside, the Honda Jazz facelift will feature a new touchscreen infotainment system among other additional features.
The new 2018 Honda Jazz will, however, remain unchanged mechanically. The new Jazz will be powered by the same 1.2 and 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, respectively.
The 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine produces 89bhp and 110Nm of torque. While the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine churns out 98bhp and 200Nm of torque.
Transmission options on the Jazz include a five-speed manual and CVT option on the petrol variant. However, the diesel engine comes standard with the six-speed manual gearbox.
The current-generation Honda Jazz comes with a starting price of Rs 6 lakh and Rs 7.44 lakh for the petrol and diesel versions, respectively. The top end petrol variant costs Rs 8.46 lakh, while the diesel option is priced at Rs 9.31 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
The 2018 Honda Jazz once launched in India, will take on rivals such as the Hyundai i20 and the Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
Thoughts On The 2018 Honda Jazz
The second-generation Honda Jazz, currently on sale was introduced back in 2014. Since then, the Jazz has not received any mid-life updates. Sales of the current generation Jazz has slowed down recently, indicating that Honda might have already stopped production of the outgoing model.
