First ever photographs of the Third-Generation Jazz have been spotted, clicked, and published by folks at Carsizzler.com. The new Jazz is seen resting alongside its stable mates Brio, Amaze and the second-gen Jazz at what looks like a Honda dealership or stockyard based at an unspecified location.
The new Jazz made its Indian debut during the Auto Expo 2014 and is expected in the showrooms sometime in late 2014 or early 2015 and not before that as has been clarified by Honda.
The new Jazz is being advertised as a spacious, versatile premium hatch with perky looks and a drive to match. The Jazz seen on these photographs shows the hatch with more sedate styling with steel rims taking the place of the shiny 5×2 spoke alloys and the car doesn’t even have a temporary registration plate that could’ve given some clues about the whereabouts of the photographed car.
The third-gen Jazz will come with both petrol and diesel powerplants. The 1.2-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder petrol engine is out of Brio, Amaze (and outgoing Jazz) where it develops around 88 bhp and 109 Nm of torque.
The diesel Jazz, probably the more anticipated variant of the car, will come equipped with the 1.5-liter i-DTEC 100PS/200Nm 4 cylinder known for its frugality. While propelling the Amaze and the City, the said engine stretches a liter of diesel a good 25+ kilometers. And on the Jazz, we expect it to be break all the existing records of fuel efficiency.
Honda says that the new Jazz has more spacious and refined interior with ‘flexible cargo capability’. Add into that equation the economy of a diesel mill and you can visualize what a lovely prospect we have in the making. The New Jazz is expected to carry a price tag between INR 4.70 lakhs for the base version going up to 7.50 lakhs for the top shelf variant ex-showroom Delhi.
