I think it looks good and mature. The interior is several grades above the current one. With the already great space efficiency, it should be a solid option at 10-11 lakh on road.

Personally, I would be willing to pay even more, if Honda stops giving it step-motherly treatment and gives it the City's engine (or the Hybrid powertrain). I would be actually tempted to trade up from my GK Jazz (which I absolutely love, BTW).

Based on what I have seen so far, I unequivocally prefer this over the 2020 City - the City looks like a cheapened developing-market version of the more global Jazz.

Is it just me or the headlamps have a striking resemblance to the current Swift?

Yes, the rear design is similar to the VW golf mark VI of 2012 vintage. I must admit, as an owner of a Jazz, I was quite relieved to see this new model. Thought Honda put in quite a lot of thought to their designs but have lost the plot with this one. Needless to say they'll be a lot of Jazz fans who will be turning away after seeing this new model.

I think the new jazz looks really good exterior and interior. It's a welcome change from the drab designs and evolutions of old. Just hope it comes to India and comes with a 1.5 petrol hybrid with CVT and also with 7 air bags. I'll be waiting with a cheque. Or otherwise they make a WRV with the same combination and I'm there for that. Cmon Honda .

I distinctly recall reading that 2020 model Jazz is based on a different platform and requires major investments in plants for manufacturing, which is not justified by volumes. I recall that the existence model will be upgraded with new engines. Now why is this being discussed in a thread dating back to 2018? Has Honda India changed its mind?

I dislike the new Jazz. It looks too placid.

I feel the first Gen Jazz (in India) looked best. The second also looks better than the latest launch.

That said, I'd seriously consider the second Gen Jazz if they decide to continue the lifecycle and launch it with a more powerful engine.

I consider the current gen Jazz the best looking. And, it sure is, sans the magic seats though. Not a fan of older Jazz. And,certainly not a fan of the forthcoming one. Honda should display this new one just to scare people into buying the current one before the stock runs out. Jokes apart, Baleno and i20 may be outselling Jazz by a long shot but I find Jazz top-end CVT the best value for money. It has paddle-shifters and cruise control which the duo doesn't have. And, the super-smooth and silent Jazz engine is heard to be believed.

January sales numbers
Baleno ~ 20000
i20 ~ 8000
Jazz 46

They already killed the product and Jazz brand in India.

Those numbers mean nothing but stock inventory cleanup. Bs6 Jazz is yet to arrive. MSIL and Hyundai have a bigger inventory to clear up until March.

Toyota and Honda January sales / dispatch numbers will be low as they are readying for BS6 and these are probably the last of BSIV cars being dispatched.

I do not think it is due to inventory clean up alone. Last 6 months average sales is ~ 500 units. That is excluding last month 46 unit sales. BS Vl version launch is not going to help improve the sales numbers.

It's Honda's own doing , too. Refusing to give us 1.5 L engine in Jazz and WRV. To give Honda that much-needed leverage over super successful Baleno and i20. Once a sales slide begins in India, it gets that much harder to recover, unless they do some stellar changes at price or features front.

My F-in-L wants to trade in his old car for a Baleno CVT. I tried convincing him on Jazz but his mind is set on Baleno. In a way, I am ok, too, because looks-wise Baleno trumps all hatchbacks and some more, by a long mile.

Trying to understand their strategy for Jazz/WRV (if there is one). They already brought out the Amaze-BS6, with absolutely no other changes. The revised price will in fact tempt some fence sitters to go for the left over BS-4 Amaze, save anywhere between 20-40k (including discounts). So, bringing in the BS-6 can actually help in closing the left over inventory faster.

....Unless, the revised version offers the possibility of anything more substantial than just the engine change. Could this be why Jazz/WRV revision is being held up? It sure can't be due to any production overload in their plant, and the 2020 Jazz is already ruled out for India. As for Jazz one sure thing I expect is the change in service interval, to 12 months, from the current 6. Any chance that the BS6 Jazz will indeed come with added features?

The very fact that the i20 and Baleno are selling in huge numbers was enough for me not to buy either of them. Good looking cars but i feel the charm gets eroded when you see so many of them. On the other hand the Jazz feels more exclusive with not so many on the road.

Honda FIT/JAZZ ready for sale in Europe. Will be only in Hybrid power-trains.

The all-new Honda Jazz will reach the UK market in the summer, based on a new platform and powered by a new two-motor petrol-hybrid powertrain.

Another new addition will be the arrival of a SUV-inspired Jazz Crosstar variant, in an attempt to muscle-in on the Nissan Juke’s territory.

Quote:
The Jazz e:HEV will be both the first Honda to use the new technology and the first model to receive Honda’s latest e:Technology branding, which will eventually feature on all of the Japanese brand’s electrified products.
Quote:
The system comprises a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol, two electric motors and a compact lithium-ion battery pack – total power output is 108bhp and 253Nm of torque. The combustion engine sends drive through an innovative fixed-gear transmission, which Honda says is smoother and more efficient than a conventional CVT.
Quote:
The standard Honda Jazz has claimed WLTP economy and emissions figures of 62.8mpg and 102g/km of CO2, while the jacked-up Honda Jazz Crosstar offers respective figures of 58.9mpg and 110g/km of CO2. Honda also says its e:HEV powertrain gives the Jazz a 0–62mph time of 9.4 seconds and a top speed of 108mph.

Honda’s e:HEV hybrid system is fitted with three, selectable drive modes – Hybrid Drive, EV Drive and Engine Drive. The first balances petrol and electric running, while recovering electricity from deceleration and storing it in the battery pack for later use. EV Drive forces the Jazz to run in electric-only mode, while Engine Drive combines the petrol engine and electric motors for maximum performance.
