While that may be so, but DSG issues will inevitably help users gravitate towards Jazz. And don't expect those bhp figures, it should be mated to the normal 1.2 one which honestly is just about adequate for the Brio.

And with Punto Abarth taking care of Manual tyranny, The Polo TSI will have a tough time. VW have lost a great opportunity despite an early entry and an excellent product. Option of manual transmission, and a 5 year warranty on DSG could arguably have helped a lot.

Came across Black / Golden metallic brown color Jazz which was tested by Carwale. Did not come across any review or snap which had this color Jazz

The Honda Jazz - Old vs New.

Certain similarities exist from the sideways view and also from the rear, but on the frontal looks and interiors, it's an all-new Jazz.

Judging from the pictures of the one with beige interiors (V variant and lower?) I have doubts how comfortable that back seat will be, at least in lower trims. The headrests are placed too low (looks practically useless as far as preventing a whiplash injury or for head support). The seat base looks fine for good thigh support but the seat back looks too short - almost like that of the Brio. Guess will need to wait for full review to be sure.

The rear seat backrest of the top VX variant seems to be bit taller and coupled with adjustable headrests, may provide better comfort.

Will be eagerly watching out for the ride quality of the Jazz, a thing Honda is not famous for here. Having suffered the bad ride quality of my Brio, I now realize its importance!

If rumors of even the lowest variants getting a HU, adjustable front headrests, a/c vents below front seats for rear, partial magic seats, etc are true, my guess is prices may start from around 5.9L ex. Delhi (even bare bones Amaze on a cheaper platform starts 5.18L, Delhi).

I love the alloy wheels of Jazz for some reasons. Thank God that Honda didn't carry forward the stupid alloys from City or the Amaze (no offences meant to the owners). But the rear seat back height and the low positioned head rests are a real let down for the occupants. Keeping fingers crossed!

Agreed and I liked them too. But, they resemble the ones on the pre-facelift Swift way, way too much.



Given, that MSIL took them off the current Swift, Honda put those up on the Jazz

Frankly like the more elegant and less fussy looks of the older one. The new Jazz simply has too many kinks and creases for my liking. Specially dislike the rear end.

The ride quality will be key, I agree. We nearly bought one from the last few batches sold in BLR but instead went for the Polo as we found that the rear seat ride was bumpy with hard and pretty basic seats.

The Business Standard review claims the Jazz doesn't have an AC Ioniser, as part of Honda's move to cut costs. Is that a deal-breaker for any of you looking to buy the car? It's disappointing for me personally - I'd rather not breathe in unfiltered fumes of Delhi city buses and autos.

Even the alloys on the older one look like they are meant to be there, understated and classy. The new Jazz overall doesn't impress me, be it downgraded quality wrt the older one or the overtly done lines.

I like the looks of the older one as well .. call me biased
Honda has gone for a much more aggressive look this time around and I think it is kind of overdone. But, at the same time, I feel the mass market is gonna love the more aggressive looks of the new Jazz. Contrary to what most people say, I feel customers in this segment do care a lot about looks and image and this is where Jazz should score well.

I agree about the slightly harder ride quality at the rear particularly at low speed (The Michelins do help somewhat). This is the number one area of improvement for the Jazz and going by the initial reviews, Honda indeed seems to have improved it .

I guess it's a pretty small thing. Not having an ioniser doesn't mean you have breathe in the unfiltered air. You will have AC filter anyways which should take care of that. Also, if you want you can fit an aftermarket electric ioniser later. Also, I am not sure which cars in this segment or even higher up have an in-built ioniser.

Even Autocar India has come out with their detailed review. The diesel engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox (head on i20). The overdrive would be much better on the highways compared to Amaze.

If priced right, we might have a winner here, who has risen from the Ashes "Phoenix".
