New Honda Jazz Coming to India in July 2015
Honda Cars India has officially announced to launch the new-generation Honda Jazz in July 2015. The announcement came in the form of a teaser image of the car, posted on the company’s social handles, saying that the all new Jazz is coming in July. Expected to be priced in the range of Rs. 4.70 lakh – Rs. 8 lakh, the Jazz will take on the likes of Hyundai i20, Maruti Suzuki Swift and others in the league.
The Jazz, that failed to create any buzz in the market in its previous avatar, will now have a completely new design and a diesel powertrain. The vehicle is based on the same platform on which the new-generation City is built. The engine options to be on offer are – 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-litre i-DTEC. Both the engines power the Amaze as well. While the petrol mill is expected to be offered with two transmission options – 5-speed manual gearbox and a 5-speed torque covertor, the diesel mill is likely to get a 5-speed manual transmission.

Rumour has it that the company might also launch a performance-oriented model of the car at a later stage. In case it happens, the hot-hatch model will get the City’s 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol unit mated to a 5-speed CVT automatic gearbox.
