Honda is currently on a high with back to back success of its two models, Amaze and the new City. It’s much awaited MPV, Mobilio is finally up for grabs and it seems that it has been able to strike a chord with customers in India. Next in the line is updated Jazz that is expected to break cover by early next year. Rumour mills have been buzzing that apart from the standard range, Honda could also put on offer a performance version of the B segment hatchback. Just like Mobilio, Jazz could also get a better equipped RS variant. Though there has been no official word out on it yet by the Japanese auto maker, but it has been learnt from close sources that Jazz RS is being contemplated for India.

Jazz was the right product with wrong pricing that failed to leave a mark in B segment. The new generation Jazz is being aimed at as a viable offering that could lure customers to the showrooms. Revisions and new additions have been made to the hatchback. Designed in line with Honda’s ‘Exciting H Design’ philosophy, 2015 Jazz looks sportier. Front fascia comes with a number of tweaks, rear too has been revised. Courtesy longer wheelbase, cabin offers enhanced space, ample legroom, shoulder space and headroom is offered to all occupants. Along with petrol trims, Jazz will also be made available in diesel engine option. Petrol range will continue to come housed with a 1.2 litre i-VTEC engine while diesel trims will get Honda’s 1.5 litre i-DTEC powertrain. The diesel engine outputting 99 Bhp of top power and 200 Nm of peak torque is expected to deliver segment best mileage of 26 kmpl giving Jazz an edge over its competition. As mentioned above, Jazz was the right product that fell prey to wrong pricing, therefore it is important for Honda to price the hatchback competitively for it to overpower its rivals in B segment.
