The 1.5-liter four-cylinder i-DTEC Earth Dreams diesel engine develops 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque, and gets a 6-speed manual only.
The diesel Jazz delivers a class-leading fuel efficiency of 27.3 km/l, while the petrol variants are rated at 19 km/l for the CVT and 18.7 km/l for the manual.
The manual variants of the Jazz will come in five variants – E, S, SV, V and VX – while the CVT will be made available in two trims – S and V. Bookings for the new Jazz have started at all dealerships in India as well.
The new Jazz for the Indian market will measure 3,955 mm in length, 1,694 mm in width, 1,544 mm in height and 2,530 mm in wheelbase. The ground clearance is rated at 165 mm.
