Honda Teases The BS6 Jazz Facelift Ahead Of Launch
Honda has recently teased the all-new Jazz which is due to launch in India within a couple of weeks. The image which has been revealed by the company indicates that there have been several changes done to the car, which includes LED headlamps along with LED DRLs and a bigger and wider grille.
Overall, on the outside, the front-end looks more proportionate now with a ‘Honda’ logo positioned at the center on the mesh grille, along with the black slat and the underlining chrome strip that looks like an extension for the LED DRLs. Also, the car gets the same set of alloy wheels and it also looks like the front bumper has been tweaked and looks muscular with a larger central air dam.
The new Jazz could get some interior tweaks such as the touchpad air-con control which was seen on the older models is expected to be replaced with a physical button control unit by the company on the upcoming model. Apart from this, other minor changes to the dashboard and upholstery are expected as well.
The hatchback will continue to offer features like the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, a semi-digital instrument cluster, climate control, and a start/stop push button out of many. Safety features include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, a rear camera with parking sensors, ISOFIX child seat anchors, and more. Moreover, we expect the top trims to be equipped with six airbags.
We expect the Honda Jazz to feature the same 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engine options that were powering the previous models, but now in a BS6 avatar. The 1.2-litre BS4 petrol engine produced 89bhp of power and 110Nm of peak torque and was mated to a five-speed manual or an optional CVT automatic. on the other hand, the 1.5-litre BS4 oil burner churned out 98bhp of power and 200Nm of peak torque.
