Honda, A Japanese automobile manufacturer with a very good reputation by producing cars like the City, Civic and Accord, has recently launched the Fit Cross Style (Japanese version of the Jazz) in Japan. The car is actually a Jazz, but with styling tweaks and updated electronics. Launched last month, the car is only for the Japan market and has plans to launch the car in India in the near future.
For the exterior, the Cross Style comes with front and rear lower bumper garnish, tailgate decal, body side moulding, wheel arch cladding and 15-inch Modulo (MG-020) wheels.All of these accessories except for the wheels come along with the Cross Style package at JPY 1,38,240 (Rs. 79,469)
As for the engine options, the Cross Style is available in 1.3L i-VTEC petrol, 1.5L i-VTEC and 1.5L i-VTEC+i-DCDpetrol-electric hybrid in Japan. The 1.3L engine produces 100 PS power and a torque figure of 119 Nm, while the 1.5L engine produces 132 PS power and torque of 155 Nm. All of the engines are connected to a CVT Automatic gearbox.
For India, we can expect the 1.5L i-VTEC petrol and the 1.5L i-DTEC engine. And going on with the interiors, the car comes with a Touchscreen Infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, touch-operated Air-con system, optional sunroof and much more.
The Honda Jazz Cross Style also comes with the optional Honda Sensing package, which includes advanced driver assistance and safety features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation braking system, Lane Keeping assist, Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation and Traffic Signal Detection, along with airbags and ABS as standard.
The Honda Jazz Cross Style would be a critically acclaimed hit once launched, as its competitors, the Hyundai i20 Active, Fiat Avventura and Volkswagen Polo Cross do not offer such equipment at the price tag. Can’t wait to see this car in India
