Honda will soon launch the 2020 Jazz in the Indian market. It is expected to go on sale in the coming weeks. Ahead of its launch, the company has started to accept pre-booking for the premium hatchback for a token amount of Rs 21,000, if booked at dealerships.
Online bookings of the new Jazz attract only Rs 5,000 as a token amount. The new Jazz has also started to arrive at dealerships prior to its launch in the market. The latest video posted by Ujjwal Saxena on YouTube channel reveals the new Jazz parked at a dealer yard.
The vehicle spotted in the video seems like a test drive car and is of the top-spec ZX trim. Earlier, the company confirmed that the 2020 Jazz will be sold as a petrol-only model and will not feature a diesel powertrain option.
As per the company's sales report, during the financial year 2019-2020, Honda on an average sold 80 per cent of petrol vehicles and 20 per cent of diesel-powered models in the Indian market. As a result, the company has decided to axe the diesel engine option on the premium hatchback.
The BS6 Honda Jazz will be powered by an updated version of the same 1.2-litre petrol engine that was powering the BS4 models. The 1.2-litre petrol engine produced 89bhp and 110Nm of torque and came mated either a five-speed manual or an optional CVT automatic. We expect the power and torque figures to remain the same in BS6 model as well.
Moving to the design and feature updates on the 2020 Jazz, the exterior changes include a new grille finished in gloss black with chrome accents, new LED headlamps with integrated DRL, new LED fog lamps, and the brand's signature LED wing light taillamps at the rear. It also features a reworked front and rear bumper design.
On the inside, the hatchback is offered with one-touch electric sunroof, cruise control, keyless entry and a push-button start/stop system in both Manual and CVT. The Jazz CVT model also features the segment-first paddle-shifters.
The other change that will be made to the 2020 Jazz include a physical button control unit for the climate control system, which will replace the touchpad system seen on the older model. It will continue to feature a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Once launched, the new Honda Jazz will rival the Tata Altroz, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the Volkswagen Polo, the Toyota Glanza and the Hyundai Elite i20. The 2020 Jazz is expected to carry a premium pricing over the BS4 model. The Honda Jazz BS4 models retailed between Rs 7.45 lakhs and Rs 9.40 lakhs, ex-showroom (Delhi).
Thoughts About The 2020 Honda Jazz Arrives At Dealerships Ahead Of Launch
The 2020 Honda Jazz was expected to arrive much earlier in the Indian market. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the company was forced to delay the launch plans. Once launched, the new Jazz will the brand's 6th model to achieve BS6 compliance after the recently launched fifth-gen Honda City.
