    Which Variant Of Honda Jazz Diesel Is The Best? Variants, Features, Prices S, V, VX Comparison

    by V3Cars Team on Monday, Nov 18 2019

    The first-generation Honda Jazz and Hyundai i20 were ahead of their time. The Honda Jazz especially experienced the recession more than the i20. However, now that we are accustomed to spending over Rs. 10 lakh (on-road) on a hatchback, the premium hatchbacks are worth looking into.

    Honda Jazz Diesel Variant Engine Specs

    This Honda’s 1.5-litre diesel engine is very fuel-efficient and Honda claims that it delivers 27.3kmpl. However, it is a little noisy compared to the competitors’ diesel engines, and also not high-revving. In fact, this diesel engine makes its power at just 3600rpm, which is the lowest as compared to the diesel engines from all its competitors.

    So, it may not be very fun to drive, but it’s very easy to drive in city traffic, as you don’t have to rev it to make quick progress in the traffic.

    Honda Jazz Diesel Variant Dimensions Comparison

    In terms of dimensions, it’s not as long as the Maruti Suzuki Baleno or the Hyundai Elite i20. However, it has a respectable wheelbase of 2530mm, and it offers adequate space inside just like its competitors. Despite a shorter length, the Honda Jazz diesel offers a healthy 354 litres of boot space, which is larger than the Maruti Baleno’s and much bigger than the i20’s. At 165mm, its ground clearance isn’t too bad, but it’s the lowest in the segment.

    For the extra price, this variant adds enough usable safety and style features to justify the price premium. Therefore, the V variant of the Honda Jazz diesel is our top recommended variant to buy.

    Honda Jazz Diesel VX Variant Feaures - Rs. 9.41 Lakh - Not A Good Value

    For another Rs. 44,000, the VX variant will give you touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay and power-folding outside mirrors with turn indicators among other features. Most of these aren’t must-have features, so, if your budget allows, you can consider buying this variant.

    Best Honda Jazz Diesel Variant - V

    The Jazz diesel V variant offers the best value for money, as it covers most of the must-have and a few nice-to-have features. The lower, S variant is a good buy for the price, while the VX variant is just a tad bit too expensive for what it offers.

    While talking about the Jazz diesel, the elephant in the room is the cost difference between the Jazz’ petrol and diesel variants. The diesel variants are about Rs. 1.5 lakh more expensive than the petrol variants. Although the 1.5-litre diesel engine is much torquier and fuel-efficient, you’re going to have to drive the hell out of it to recover that extra cost you pay upfront.
