My First Date with the all new Honda Jazz ~ Truths, Experiences and Facts!

4th July came early and bright for me as I meticulously dressed to go and witness the all new Honda Jazz and take it for a ride at none other than the Internationally renowned F1 racing track in India, the Buddh International Circuit! Although the official launch is on 8th July, a select number of Bloggers like me were invited to the  ‘Hangout with Honda’ event where the All New Jazz was showcased and we got a chance to drive the Jazz first and in the words of the CEO of Honda Car India, we got to drive the car even before the dealers, marketers and industry experts. How cool is that!

The all new Honda Jazz
Well, as soon as I saw the new Jazz, my interest was caught by its sleek, suave and trendy design with its bright colours that made it look young and fashionable. While most cars look good on paper, they often don't match up in real but I am happy to say that the Jazz not only looked good on paper, it looked even better when I finally laid hands on it!

Honda Jazz has got a makeover both in terms of design and features and now is more sporty, more stylish and more awesome features laden. It has a Sedan-like comfort in a sporty new design and follows the 'Exciting H Design' by the Japanese automaker. The facia is common with the Honda City while the bumper is more sportier. The interiors layout, seat fabric, console are also common with the premium feel we get in Honda City. Honda has now given all that much famous premium feel of Honda City in their premium hatchback, Jazz.

Jazz will be launched in the below colours in India.

Jazz will come in these exciting colours.
The new Honda Jazz is 3.95 metres with a wheelbase of 2.95 metres making it significantly more spacious than the older model. The car is spacious and their is more leg space, head space and shoulder space. Even taller people with heights above 6 feet can sit comfortably in the new Jazz.

The exterior of the new Jazz is made classy with Front grille with Premium Black Gloss and Chrome Finish, Front Fog Lamps, Sporty Sleek Head Lamps, Alloy Wheels, LED High Mount Stop Lamp, Rear Micro Antenna, Chrome Rear License Garnish, Electric Adjustable and Foldable Outside Mirror with Turn Indicators, Premium LED Rear Tail Lamps.

The interior also not far behind and is made appealing, premium with a luxury feel with the Honda City like space inside, rich fabric used in the seats, Multi- Functional Steering Wheel with Audio controls. Hands Free Telephone Controls and Paddle Shifts (in Automatic variant only), Integrated 15.7 cm (6.2") Touchscreen AUN, Auto AC with Touchscreen Control Panel, Integrated Audio with 12.7 cm (5") Screen, Advanced Multi Information Combimeter with Eco Assist Ambient Rings.

The new Jazz is stunning and armed with cool parts inside too!

If you are still not completely bowled over then wait till you hear about the MAGIC Seats!

The new Honda Jazz comes with MAGIC Seats. They are magical because they can adjust to give more space. There are four modes in these MAGIC Seats that can be used to get more space. 




1) Tall Mode- Lift the lower part of the back seat up to make more space.

2) Utility Mode- Pull down the back seat to get additional space.

3) Refresh Mode-
Take a nap in your Jazz by pulling back the front seats. They combine with the back seats to make a makeshift bed.

4) Long Mode-
Pull back one front seat and pull down one back seat to make space for that extra stuff you want to carry!

Aren't these modes just cool and unique!





Now coming finally to the engines which are a must- check- out feature for all driving enthusiasts, Jazz doesn't let us down in this department too. Giving us two 'Best in segment' engines using the i-DTEC and i-VTEC CUT technology, it runs like a charm which I witnessed not anywhere but at the Buddh International F1 racing circuit!

The Diesel variant of the car comes armed with the i-DTEC engine with a mileage of 27.3 kmpl. It is 1.5 litre Engine with Maximum Power of 100 ps, has an all Aluminium Engine Block for better efficiency, a 6 Speed MT Gearbox and Low Friction Technology for higher Fuel Economy. The engine is the same that comes with Honda City and is an engine to watch out for in India where commutes are long and petrol prices soaring. The diesel variant Jazz ran sedately, the pick up was fluid and it cut corners with ease. Never for even once did I feel like I was not driving a petrol car. There are no jerks, no late pickup and no extra noise that is found in other diesel cars here.

The Petrol variant of the car comes with i-VTEC CUT with a mileage of 19.9 mpl. It is a 12 litre engine with a max power of 90 ps. The car comes in both manual and automatic variants and I got to experience both. The manual is smooth with quick acceleration and the mileage is also great. According to Honda, it delivers the higher mileage than any other manual in its segment.I experienced the Jazz twice and got to know both the Manual and the Automatic variants first hand and I am so happy to say that I loved them both. 


The automatic is easy to drive, has easy pickup, accelerates easily and the overall experience had me itching to tell everyone about it.

The all new Jazz, not only gives the driver comfort and driving satisfaction but is also super comfortable for the passengers!

The ride back to the pit!
Overall, the new Honda Jazz is spacier, trendier, sportier, more hick and absolutely a lovely drive with features that are premium and give this car a luxury feel. 

According to the CEO of Honda Car India, Katsushi Inoue, "This is a car for the younger generation that wants 'Everything'! This is a car for a young girl like you..."


I completely agree with him. If you are looking for a trendy, stylish and yet fuel efficient car that has some awesome features that you can showoff plus also gives you that driving and passenger side satisfaction and comfort then you should definitely check out the all new Honda Jazz which just got launched today i.e on 8th July!
