An revised, BS6-compliant Honda Jazz has just been advertised on the website of India’s Japanese carmaker. The trailer reveals a darkened picture of the latest Jazz, but certain aspects of the exterior are clear, such as the hood, wheels and body lines.
From this preview it seems that in the transition to BS6 the exterior would stay mostly unchanged, as the headlight and grille of the wheels look nearly similar to those of the BS4 edition. However, there is a chance that the bumper configuration can be changed slightly.
On the engine front, we expect Honda to outfit the premium hatchback with its current 1.2-liter petrol engine BS6-compliant edition, which will continue to generate 90hp and 110Nm torque. Also updating to satisfy the latest pollution standards would be the 100hp/200Nm, 1.5-liter diesel engine.
The BS6 Jazz gearbox offerings will be identical to the recently revised Amaze compact sedan, as all engines will be fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission, although the 1.2-liter petrol will still continue to offer a CVT automatic gearbox. The variation of the Amaze diesel-CVT could even make it into the new Jazz.
No big improvements to either the interior architecture or the Jazz’s equipment list are planned. A 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment device with maps, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, electrically adjusted and rotating wing mirrors with headlights, adaptive climate control and more will continue to appear at the top-spec Jazz.
