If someone had thought the best of Honda is already delivered with the first diesel car ‘Amaze’ and the new ‘City’, think again! The mass oriented category hatchback too is about to see something new from the carmaker. Jazz that served the purpose for many years and was meant to receive a major upgrade this month, is now delayed till June for some production issues at the manufacturing facility.
On board, City and Amaze both holds vast waiting period, which reflects the hatchback still needs to some more months to hit the assembly line at production. International markets got this new Jazz way back, but since the company was aiming huge and was in the process of immense localization for competitive pricing, it took these many years for it to see the dawn on our shores.
Under the bonnet, new Jazz would use the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel of City and 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol of Amaze and Brio. As per to some rumours, company is also in the process of bringing Accord sedan here, but no concrete confirmation is lent on this. Hence, once launched, hatchbacks like Hyundai Elite i20, New Maruti Swift, Volkswagen Polo, Fiat Punto Evo even the upcoming Maruti YRA shall better take care of.
