Detailed Honda Jazz Review

What's Good?

The best thing about Honda Jazz is the amount of space that it offers, let it be cabin, rear seat or the boot space. It is an extremely Spacious car which offers flexible storage options. Build Quality is Excellent. Fuel efficient and silent Engine. Airbag for Driver and co-passenger along with Rear Wiper and Defogger is Standard in all versions.

What can improve?

Ground Clearance should be increased. Diesel option is very much needed. Auto Climate control for AC should be added. Bluetooth Connectivity.

Overall Comments

The cute look of the car, beautifully designed headlamps, large windscreen and good visibility area is inevitable. There are three versions of Jazz : Base, Select and X. The Base version has a black front grille with black plastic plated boot lid whereas the Select version has a chrome front grill with chrome plated boot lid. In the X version of Jazz there is a sporty body colored front grille with black boot lid. Jazz. In the Base and Select version you can adjust the ORVM(outside rear view mirror) electronically but in X version it can also be electronically open and close. The Select and X version comes with Alloy wheels whereas Base version comes with Steel rims. Overall the car looks long and large glasses gives an airy feel from inside.

Here comes the best part of Jazz, open the door and you will say wow. It has a huge dashboard with a beautiful and large instrument cluster with very useful details like Fuel efficiency, Tripmeter and the most useful distance to empty details. It has the integrated music system standard in all models which offers CD, AUX and USB support with Steering mounted Audio Controls. It has got a cupholder in front of the ac vents which is very useful in hot summer if you are carrying cold drink or cold water. It has bottle holder in every door. It has got the maximum headroom and legroom in the hatchback segment with the massive 366 litres of boot Space. The rear seat can be reclined in both direction and can also folded in 60:40 ratio as per our need. This is what Honda call as Magic Seats. The seats are very comfortable and 3 passengers can be seated very comfortably without any compromise The interior in Base and Select has the combination of Beige and black whereas in X its Blue and Black. Overall it is very very spacious and offers great flexibility to the passengers with comfortability.

Honda offers only a 1.2 Litre I-Vtec Petrol Engine for Jazz which produces good amount of power with healthy torque. Engine is peppy and car is fun to drive, it forces you to rev it hard without producing any harsh noise. The car has good all round visibility. The 5 speed manual transmission gearbox is smooth and precise. Handling is superb because of light steering wheel and car has a very short turning radius. The claimed Mileage is 16.7 kmpl by Honda but in daily City traffic you can get 11 kmpl easily and the clutch is also very light to press. It has got ABS and EBD which helps to stop the car with ease during any emergency. It also has Dual Airbags for safety. Overall ride quality is compliant and very good.

Although at present Honda has stopped producing Jazz but a New 2014 Jazz is on its way. The pictures of New Jazz has been revealed and it looks fabulous. Surely it will boost up the sales of Honda.
