The Elite i20’s segment now has a new entrant in the Honda Jazz.

All variants of the premium hatchback will now get a different seat upholstery, while the ticket holder has been removed. On the base Era variant, the passenger vanity mirror has been given the miss. Moving higher up, the Sportz trim will no longer get a leather-wrapped steering and gearknob, a boot lamp and auto-up function for the driver-side window. Further, where HMIL used to offer two folding keys on this variant, only one folding-type key will be offered from now (the spare key would be ordinary).

The Sportz (O) trim is also devoid of a leather-wrapped steering and gearknob. On the range-topping Asta variant, one of the two 12V power socket has been deleted.
