If you look at the Jazz before it was restored, nearly every body panel of the hatchback seemed cheaply repaired and repainted several times. The headlamps were all cloudy due to oxidation and the outside ORVMs had even lost their mirror caps. Even a tail lamp at the rear was cracked and the clear coat on this Jazz was pealing off from several places. It almost looked like it had been sitting at a scrap yard for months than a not-so-old Jazz that was used regularly. Honda updated the Jazz with a facelift that brought in comprehensive cosmetic tweaks and more features on the inside. On the outside, the hatchback was updated with a chrome accentuated high-gloss black front grille, new LED headlamps with LED DRLs, and LED fog lamps. The front and rear bumpers were also revised for a sportier look. The signature rear LED wing light ensures that the new Jazz is as good looking from the back as it is from the front.
Under the hood, the BS6 Honda Jazz is powered by a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine. This mill delivers a maximum power of 90 PS at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 110 Nm at 4,800 rpm. For transmission duties, a 5-speed manual and CVT gearbox option is available. Honda claims that the 2020 Jazz with the 5-speed gearbox is capable of giving a fuel economy of 16.6 km/l whereas the CVT model can return 17.1 km to a litre. The Jazz is also the only car in the segment which is equipped with steering wheel-mounted Paddle Shifters in the CVT variants. Prices for the Honda Jazz currently range between INR 7.50 lakh and INR 9.74 lakh (ex-showroom). Stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for more Honda updates and other four-wheeler news.
