The petrol Jazz will get a CVT with paddle-shifters.
CarDekho has spied the 2015 Honda Jazz with a touchscreen infotainment and navigation system. The Honda AVN system, which is also offered on the Brio, Amaze and City, is a 15.7 cm touchscreen display capable of DVD/CD, Bluetooth, USB, AUX-in, iPod, satellite-based voice-guided navigation, MP3 and FM/AM.
The new Jazz, which borrows its center console and platform from the new City, is also seen here with the touch-panel for the automatic climate control system. Other features which will be seen on the India-spec Honda Jazz include dual airbags, ABS and EBD, alloy wheels, power folding wing mirrors, reverse parking sensors, steering mounted audio controls and a keyless entry system with an engine starter button.
The new Jazz is expected to launch in India on July 8, 2015. Unlike its predecessor, Honda Cars India will launch the premium hatchback with petrol and diesel engines with a high-degree of localization (reportedly above 90 percent).
The 1.2-liter i-VTEC petrol is expected with 88 PS and 109 Nm of torque, while the 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel should produce 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque on the new Honda Jazz. The petrol will be paired to a 5-speed manual and a CVT gearbox which gets paddle-shifters and an E-CON driving mode. The diesel though will be offered only with a manual transmission.
Rivals: Maruti Swift, Tata Bolt, Fiat Punto Evo, VW Polo, Hyundai Elite i20
Expected Price: INR 5-8 lakhs, ex-Showroom
Launch date in India: July 8, 2015 (reported)
