2018 Honda Jazz Facelift has been launched with subtle changes all around and more importantly, automatic in top variant.
Honda has become a very aggressive manufacturer in recent times, it is making sure that it stays fresh and relevant in a very short period of time to woo its customers. The manufacturer is already known for making stellar products in its class. Offering best in class features and mileage along with performance is become a forte for the company. The manufacturer has started that with the all new Honda City but the prices are high. Despite that, sales are picking up and the manufacturer continues to do well in the segment. It launched a slew of cars facelifted since later last year and in 2017, we saw the new WRV and City Facelift. Honda now has facelifted the Jazz in the Indian market with subtle tweaks, not very big changes.
The new Jazz will now be available in 2 grades in Petrol – V and VX and 3 grades in Diesel – S, V and VX with Manual Transmission. Responding to the market trend of higher acceptance and demand for Automatics, new Honda Jazz will now be available with advanced CVT technology in both V and VX grades in Petrol. The colour line-up of the new Jazz also gets refreshed and the new model features Premium Beige interiors with a choice of 5 exterior colours – Radiant Red Metallic (new), Lunar Silver Metallic (New), Modern Steel Metallic, Golden Brown Metallic and White Orchid Pearl.
Honda Jazz Facelift Design and Dimensions
The facelift will see a major revision to the front headlamps and tail-lamps. The model is based on the City platform and we expect the lamps on both end to be LED on top-end variants. The dimensions are likely to stay the same as it will duck under the four-meter mark. The car will continue to have the slightly MPV design which maximises practicality.
