The old Jazz was a daring move made by the auto company who thought to introduce the concept of premium hatchbacks in the market. This vehicle was precisely true to the move made by its manufacturer, however, it missed out on the optimistic retail pricing, which in turn resulted in poor sales. Eventually, what followed was quite disheartening as the vehicle had to be taken off from the market and labelled as being discontinued. This passenger car also missed opportunities due to a lack of diesel option. Thus, from this perspective, it is indeed interesting that Honda is yet again keen and active to revive the vehicle's fortunes in the Indian passenger car market.

The upcoming Honda Jazz is likely to get either a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine or 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine. Customers can also expect this vehicle to come with both automatic and manual transmission. The i-DTEC diesel engine boasts of a high fuel efficiency, which is one of the prime highlights of Honda Amaze's success in the Indian market. It simply means that the upcoming Honda Jazz is like to get a highly positive response from domestic customers. Once launched, this vehicle will be competing with models like Hyundai i20, Maruti Swift and Volkswagen Polo.
