Refreshed Honda Jazz hatchback gets four petrol and three diesel variants; gets a new top-spec petrol-CVT but misses out on magic seats.
Honda is all set to introduce the updated Jazz hatchback to its India line-up on July 19, 2018, as reported by us a few days ago. A complete list ofchanges and feature additions, along with new images, have now surfaced online, prior to its official launch.
The 2018 Honda Jazz update will come with four petrol and three diesel variants. While the engine options remain unchanged, the Honda Jazz petrol will be sold in V and VX trims with both variants available with manual or CVT automatic gearbox options. The Honda Jazz diesel will be sold in base S, V and VX trims equipped with a manual gearbox. Unlike the Amaze, Honda will not offer a diesel-CVT variant on the Jazz.
