Jazz Pros & Cons

By Abhishek Katariya on Sep 08, 2020
Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

Jazz Overview

Ever since its launch, the Honda Jazz has become one of the favorite hatchbacks in the Malaysian markets. The Japanese manufacturer has offered a complete package of a powerful engine, spacious interiors as well as a decent mileage. Jazz also sets a benchmark example when it comes to flexibility in space levels of the cabin. 

Talking about the cabin space, we must say that it is one of the prominent features of Jazz as it works on the concept of ‘man maximum, machine minimum’. Jazz offers an ample amount of legroom and knee-room as compared to other premium hatchbacks. In an unprecedented design, it also has great under-thigh support in its rear bench, making the rear passengers very comfortable every time.


Honda Jazz Interior & Features

As you step inside the cabin space of Honda Jazz you will be glad to see the elegance and sophistication that the inside of the car has to offer. Jazz is feature-loaded with stylish and premium interior equipment. The seats are covered with premium-quality upholstery that instantly gives a plush feel to the occupants. As a step towards the smart entry ad exit system, Jazz comes with smart keyless entry and push the start button. There is also an automatic air-conditioning system that has an electrostatic touch control panel, designed to deliver maximum convenience to the passengers. The center-instrument console also comes loaded with a number of features like a 7-ich touchscreen display infotainment system, armrest, vanity mirror, rear-seat reclining, height-adjustable driver seat, multi-information meter behind the steering wheel, and power-adjustable doors. Additionally, there are also multiple cup holders and other pockets of storage for smart and organized storage. Jazz offers a boot-space of 399 liters and there is ample space for storing goods and luggage. 

Jazz Exterior

The exterior aesthetics of Honda Jazz are equally stylish as much as the interior styling hues are. The front fascia of the car dons a bold look with halogen headlights along with LED Daytime Running Lights. The fog lights are also redesigned to offer a more exquisite look to the front profile of the car. The front also dons a black-colored chrome grille that houses the brand’s logo “H”. The rear profile of the car also has a newly designed LED tail-lights. Apart from this, the door handles are colored to match the color of the body and retractable mirrors with turning lights are also some prominent styling intricacies. The Honda Jazz rides on 15-inch steel wheels that comprise of 175/65 R15 tyre size. As per the measurement dimensions, the Honda Jazz comes with a wheelbase of 2,530mm, 3,955 mm long, 1,694 mm wide, and stands at a height of 1,524 mm.

Honda Jazz Engine & Fuel Consumption

Honda Jazz has a 1.5-liter i-VTEC fuel-efficient petrol engine at its heart,  that ensures a smooth power delivery and fuel-efficiency. The engine is capable of sparking a maximum power of 120 PS at 6,600 rpm along with a peak torque of 145 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The engine is mated to an advanced Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) system. The CVT keeps the environment inside the vehicle balanced and also results in better acceleration. 

The hybrid variant comes with a 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine and an integrated electric motor that sparks 137 PS of power and 170 Nm of torque. If you love a thrilling ride, the Honda Jazz is the best choice in this segment as it can offer a maximum mileage of 25 kmpl. 

Jazz Braking & Safety

While all the exterior and interior features of the Jazz are top-notch, the braking and safety standard of the car are also to count on. Jazz has a good suspension and ventilated disc brakes, that allows full control and balance for the car. The rear wheels are also controlled by drum wheels, allowing complete grip over the car. Jazz has Anti-Lock Braking System that prevents it from sliding in case you are on a ride to the hills. Additionally, Jazz is fully equipped with all other basic and standard safety equipment like 6 SRS airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) along with hazard lights and rear brake lights. Honda Jazz includes an HDMI socket, a Hands-free telephone with control buttons for accepting and rejecting calls on the steering wheel along with voice recognition function, which is very helpful and safe for the driver. 

Honda Jazz Verdict

The Honda must receive acclamation for designing the Jazz with utmost detailing and smartness.  It gets a sporty look and a comfortable cabin space with a generous amount of legroom and headspace for the driver as well as the passengers. The 1.2-litre petrol engine that powers this vehicle performs very well and delivers a good fuel efficiency. Still, amongst the tough competition from its peers, Honda Jazz is a good family car in the hatchback segment.
