Update: As an update to this article we posted yesterday, Economic Times has reported that the launch date of the New Jazz will be 8th of July!
The wait is getting over! Like us, if you are a fan of Jazz, here is an official confirmation from Honda about its Indian launch. After a long delay, Honda has updated at their Facebook page that the All-New Jazz will be launched in July and for all you skeptics they have also specified the year as 2015 😛
As a quick refresher, let us tell you that this time Jazz will be a lot localized and hence expect a real competitive price tag. Unlike last time when it was offered only with a petrol engine, the new Jazz will come with the 1.5 liter diesel engine as well. This will round up the hatch as a real threat to the new i20, Polo and Maruti Suzuki’s upcoming YRA hatchback.
The car has got a new design which sports a refreshing face and a similar big interior compartment. Apart from manual transmission options, Jazz will also be available with an automatic gearbox option on the petrol motor. We expect Honda to price the car between Rs 5.5 Lakh for the entry petrol variant to about 8+ Lakhs for the top of the line variant, bang in the i20 territory.
