The all-new Honda Jazz is set to make its official Indian debut in July 2015. However, Gaadi has caught a red example of the upcoming new Honda hatchback at a dealership. The images show the front fascia sporting a thick, glossy black slat on the front grille that stretches right to the headlight cluster. You will also find a thin chrome strip right underneath this slat. The chrome embellishment looks nice and finds itself between the slat and the bumper. The latter also houses fog lamps and a large opening for the meshed air dam. This car also gets alloy wheels, which may not be present on lower models.
The tall taillight unit looks like the ones found in some Volvo cars. Looks good, though.
At the back, the 2015 Honda Jazz gets a thick chrome strip that runs between the taillight cluster. This particular example also sports a roof-mounted spoiler and rear wiper. This particular model is the 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder i-VTEC variant that comes mated to a CVT gearbox. This gearbox comes with steering-mounted paddle shifters and offers a ‘Sports’ mode. The petrol engine makes 90 PS of max power and offers 109 Nm of shove. The diesel Jazz will get the familiar 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine that puts 100 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque. Unlike the petrol Jazz, the diesel variant will only be available with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Only the petrol Jazz will offer the CVT gearbox and its associated paddle shifters.
The cabin of the new Honda Jazz is mostly black and gets some silver metallic accents. This particular car gets beige seat upholstery and the door pads get the beige treatment too. This interior bears resemblance to the City’s cabin and could also get similar features. Click here for more on the interior features of the 2015 Honda Jazz. Honda is expected to launch the new Jazz on July 8, 2015. Thanks to extensive localisation, we expect the Japanese carmaker to price the hatchback sensibly.
