The Shuttle is offered with a petrol and hybrid engine in Japan.

Based on the same platform as the new City/new Jazz, the Shuttle gets added practicality thanks to its estate dimensions, which offer cargo carrying space of 570 liters (1,141 liters with the rear seats folded). The 184 cm loading bay offers owners to carry long items, which will otherwise require a pickup truck.

The new Jazz Shuttle is offered with a petrol and a hybrid engine option. The petrol mill is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder direct-injection DOHC i-VTEC unit paired to a CVT gearbox, while the hybrid too is a 1.5-liter motor running on the Atkinson cycle, paired to Honda’s i-DCD (dual-clutch) 7-speed transmission.

The Shuttle is based on the same platform as the Jazz, and hence borrows its interior from the hatchback as well.

Paired to 2WD and 4WD, the most fuel efficient version of the Shuttle Hybrid returns an efficiency of 37 km/l in the Japanese JC08 driving cycle. Features on the estate include full LED headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, touchscreen infotainment and HVAC controls, steering mounted controls, ABS, EBD and a raft of airbags to keep occupants safe.

    Even I feel the hondas should have bought the jazz shuttle to India , instead of the cheap looking mobilio. The front looks of the mobilio is hopeless. The width of the mobilio is so small that we feel as if its a 5 lac Rs car . The interiors are lacklustre as well.

  2. Crash says:

    Honda can launch it in India to compete with Innova, this would perfectly slot above the Mobilio and would cater to the luxury conscious buyers

    1. Rohan says:

      This car is a five seater car. Its an estate and not an MPV. It can’t compete with the innova. I’d like to see interiors like that in the new jazz though.

      1. Keeleri Achu says:

        If a Wagon R can be made 7 seater with little stretch, why not Honda can’t add another row in this car? It is doable.

    2. hi2aravind says:

      But this will not become proper 7 seater MUV even if 2 seats are added to this car. Mobilio itself is not selling much, probably they have to make Mobilio more luxurious.

      1. Crash says:

        Mobilio front end looks cheap and its placed to fight with the Ertiga and there is no Innova competitor in the market right now and Honda Shuttle with a diesel option could be the perfect taking on the Innova
