Hey congrats buddy!
Which revs are you driving the car to get that mileage? Never got more than 16.5 kmpl!
You seem to be pretty unhappy with the car. It does not seem like you were entirely convinced about buying this car!
Hope you like it more as you put more miles in your car

There is only one cabin light in the middle but no reading/map lights in the front. This is a feature which is there in the international models for Jazz and has been skimped for India to cut costs - I find it very irritating and stupid cost cutting from Honda, particularly as this car is positioned as a super-premium hatch! (mentioned the same in my ownership thread as well). On top of that, no boot light as well for such a huge boot!

Same is true for 10 lakh rupee ANHC so Jazz is not alone skimping on that. There is a hump where the lights were supposed to have been in international models, but no lights behind the rear-view mirror in front of the driver. There is a light in the middle to light the whole car but thats not enough.

Take a look at Vento and you see 2 lights for the driver in front cabin

I am surprised to hear that such a basic feature is not available in the ANHC as well. I think even the Dezire/Manza might have those. I really do not know how these companies decide to cut such basic features for India - very stupid indeed!

@devarshi84, congratulations! The Jazz truly rocks, and the discounts + freebies definitely make it a lot more appealing, given the general perception that it was overpriced by 1L+.

OT: Sorry to know the ANHC doesn't have reading lights too. Can't the (reading / boot) lamps be retrofitted? Would that void the warranty? This info may be useful to other Jazz / ANHC users.

It was basically the deal that lured us into buying one. I am having a happy silent and frugal time rolling around the town painting it Deep Sapphire Blue.

A favor, can you please attach the image of the AUX-IN cable and how it is attached to the HU?
Thank you. My post might have a stronger dose of criticism but I totally love my car. It fulfills all the requirements with elan.

I usually keep the engine revs between 1-2K. It less about the revs and more about using a light foot. Even my lancer delivers 17kmpl on the highway regularly with a/c on.

I am happy with the car, its just that I didnt expect Honda to land up in the garage.

It would be great if you can comment on the rear seat ergonomics and comfort. I read some comments about the seat causing a backache during longer rides.

Congrats devarshi84.

Your story about selling your WagonR and buying a Jazz is similar to another BHPian. I think his handle is coolone.

You got the car for a really nice price + all the freebies thrown in. And a mileage you achieve is rocking too. You must have a lot of patience to keep it light foot and revving only under 2K.

Cheers

Congrats dev for the Jazz. Your review has been strange in the respect that it was highly critical about the car, yet the Honda has been able to satiate most of your requirements. Happy town tripping.

Congrats on the Jazz!

the mileage of 21 that you have quoted is from the MID or your calculations on tank full to tank full?

Ideally tank full to tank full is the right way to calculate the mileage

I have checked mileage before for the city and it was accurate (didnt count the decimal places). Like I mentioned before, I will re-check to see if the MID is correct.

Yes, I have and still am critical about Honda in India. Their prices and stuff. I used to say I will never buy a Honda but it surprisingly was the only car that met my requirements of a Silent and smooth car.

I havent really sat on the rear seat but from my experience, adjusting the headrests works well to keep the passenger comfortable.

This car is supposed to be driven in the city only. It's the lancer that sees an occasional sprint. It is not really tough to extract such mileage from this Honda it seems.

Ah thanks! I wasn't aware Jazz HU came with a AUX IN on the front panel.
