Honda has teased its upcoming BS6 updated Jazz. The reports reveal that the car will be revised in terms of design as well as powertrain. The Japanese automotive maker is working rapidly to develop the models sold in the Indian market. The company has already released a teaser image in April. The launch was postponed due to current COVID-19 lockdown.
The automotive companies are resuming the operations again. Hence, we will soon notice the launch of some much-awaited models like BS6 compliant Jazz. The companies will follow the standards announced by the Government to prevent the coronavirus. The employees of showrooms and operations will follow the mandatory rules strictly.
The carmaker will introduce the new BS6 Jazz with only a petrol powertrain and ditch the BS6 diesel engine. The company planned after noticing rasing demand for petrol engine models. In the Indian market, Honda India has reported almost 80 per cent of overall sales for petrol variants and 20 per cent for diesel powertrains.
The BS6 compliant Jazz will get few exterior and interior updates as well. At the front, it will be integrated with new stylish LED headlamps along with a few new elements and design on the surface like new chrome trimming. It also gets LED fog lights which makes it distinct. At the rear section, it is equipped with LED tail lamps set up. It sits on new machine-cut alloy wheels.
The cabin features are not revealed, but it can get a larger 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and connected technology support, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, climate control, a start/stop push button, and many more.
The BS4 Jazz is powered by a 1.2 litre NA i-VTEC four-cylinder engine which is capable of making 99 bhp of max power and 110 Nm of peak torque, combined with a 5-speed manual or CVT assembly. The power figures in BS6 version will be higher compared to the BS4 engine. On the other hand, the existing 1.5-litre diesel engine produces 99 bhp of power and 200 Nm of torque, combined with a 6-speed manual transmission.
In terms of safety, it will come with dual-airbags, ABS with EBD, rear camera with parking sensors, ISOFIX mounts, and six airbags. Unfortunately, the global variant will not come to the Indian market. It is assumed to hit the Indian auto market next month. BS6 Honda Jazz will rival against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20, Toyota Glanza and Tata Altroz.
