The BS6 Honda Jazz loses out on a diesel engine option but arrives with a fresh face and some crucial premium features like all-LED lighting and one-touch sunroof.

Just a few days back, Honda had opened its order books for the BS6 Jazz and today, the car has been officially launched at ₹7.49 lakh. The BS6 Jazz is available in three trim levels – V, VX and a new top-spec ZX trim – and each trim is available with either a five-speed manual (ARAI fuel-efficiency – 16.6km/l) or a seven-speed CVT automatic gearbox (ARAI fuel-efficiency – 17.1km/l). This takes the BS6 Jazz's total variant-count up to six. While the prices of the manual variants range from ₹7.49 lakh to ₹8.73 lakh, the automatic variant range is priced between ₹8.49 lakh and ₹9.73 lakh. All figures are ex-showroom, Delhi.

MT ₹7.49 lakh ₹8.09 lakh ₹8.73 lakh
CVT ₹8.49 lakh ₹9.09 lakh ₹9.73 lakh

In its BS6 guise, the Jazz continues to be powered by the brand's 1.2-litre four-cylinder i-VTEC petrol motor that develops 89bhp @ 6,000rpm & 110Nm of torque @ 4,800rpm. However, the outgoing 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel powertrain has been axed from the updated Jazz's line-up primarily due to low demand, as folks at Honda claim that sales of the petrol CVT automatic variants accounted for nearly 70% of the Jazz's total sales last year.

Design-wise, the BS6 Jazz gets a mild facelift in the form of a revised front fascia (new bumper & grille), new LED headlamps with LED DRLs & LED fog lamps (ZX trim only), a new rear bumper and a revised LED wing light. Inside, a new soft-touch surface forms the part of the passenger-side dashboard and the overall interior upholstery has been revamped too.

Apart from the BS6 upgrade, the 2020 Jazz receives a segment-first one-touch sunroof (ZX trim only) and like before, the CVT-equipped variants continue to offer paddle shifters (another segment-first feature). Also, features like cruise control, which was earlier reserved for the higher-spec variants, is now standard across all variants (MT as well as CVT). Both V & VX trims also get LED DRLs, while the VX trim also gets keyless entry (Honda Smart Key with push-button start/stop) as standard now.

The infotainment unit on the updated Jazz is Honda's DIGIPAD 2.0 that works via a 7-inch touchscreen (VX/ZX trim) and offers Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a new Weblink connectivity option. The list of safety features includes dual front SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, a multi-view rear camera (with guiding lines) & rear parking sensors, high speed alert, engine immobiliser, etc.

There are five colour options available with the 2020 Honda Jazz – Lunar Silver Metallic, Radiant Red Metallic, Golden Brown Metallic, Platinum White Pearl & Modern Steel Metallic.

The 2020 Honda Jazz comes with a 3-Year/unlimited km standard warranty and additional 2-Year unlimited/limited km extended warranty packages. Those looking for an Annual Maintenance Package (at the time of new car purchase) can get a 3-Year/30,000km package for ₹11,670.
