From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Honda Jazz

Ever since its launch, the Honda Jazz has been the benchmark when it comes to flexibility of space levels in the cabin. The current generation has successfully managed to fill the shoes of its predecessors with the amazing number of configurations in which one can adjust the seating at both front and rear rows.

The famous Honda philosophy of ‘man maximum, machine minimum’ has worked wonders for Honda Jazz as well, as the Jazz offers the best amount of legroom and knee room in the category of premium hatchbacks. Not only this, but the Jazz also has great under-thigh support in its rear bench, making the rear passengers very comfortable every time.

Honda has got great mastery in making good petrol engines, and the 1.2-litre petrol engine which the Jazz has been blessed with offers good levels of refinement and smooth power delivery. The NVH levels are quite low, which make the in-cabin experience of Honda Jazz a much pleasant one.

Honda Jazz

The current generation Honda Jazz has been in the market for a very long time, and despite the fact that the Jazz has a very extrovert and edgy design, it has begun to show its age.

Another aspect which needs a special mention is the amount of features the Honda Jazz is equipped with. Considering the fact that the competition has moved the game one level up by introducing many comfort and convenience features from one segment above, the Jazz feels a bit dated as it lacks many of the modern features.

While the Honda Jazz impresses you with its sweet power delivery and performance from the potent i-VTEC engine, the fuel efficiency is something which could have been a bit closer to the segment benchmark.
