Japanese supermini now safer, but pricier.

In January, Honda Cars India made dual-front airbags standard in the Honda City, and now it's turn of the Honda Jazz. The company has increased the hatchback's safety quotient by making dual-front airbags standard.

The Honda Jazz's E and S trim levels weren't equipped with dual-front airbags as standard previously.

Previously, dual-front airbags were fitted only in the V, SV and VX trim levels, but starting this month, the E and S trim levels have them. Of course, the increased safety isn't a treat from the company; prices of the E and S trim levels have been increased by INR 12,000.

The Jazz E petrol and Jazz E diesel are priced at INR 5,81,200 (ex-showroom Delhi) and INR 7,11,750 (ex-showroom Delhi) respectively, while the Jazz S petrol and Jazz S diesel cost INR 6,44,800 (ex-showroom Delhi) and INR 7,80,350 (ex-showroom Delhi) respectively.
