2020 Honda Jazz Facelift

What Are The Pros And Cons Of Honda Jazz Facelift Petrol?

The pros or advantages of Jazz Facelift petrol 2020 are:

  • Most affordable car in India and the only mass-market hatchback with a sunroof.
  • Loaded base V variant gets standard features like alloy wheels, cruise controls, steering-mounted controls, music system, auto AC, rear defogger, rear washer/wiper, front armrest, remote central locking, rear camera and paddle shifts (for CVT automatic).
  • Smooth, high-revving and powerful 1.2L petrol engine.
  • Fold-flat front passenger seat for relaxing in the back seat.
  • Best-in-class boot space is big enough to challenge the more expensive B2 segment small SUV.

The Honda Jazz Facelift petrol 2020 has the following shortcomings or problems:

  • Jazz petrol has the lowest mileage in its segment.
  • The torque-to-weight ratio of the Jazz petrol BS6 is second only to the Polo non-turbo and the torque peaks at very high 4800rpm. Expect drivability at low RPMs to be adequate at best.
  • High starting price as there’s no true base variant. Jazz’ starting price is on par with the Altroz XZ.
  • 15-inch wheels even in the top variant are small for a relatively expensive B2 hatchback.
  • Touch-based AC controls are difficult to use without taking your eyes off the road.
  • No magic seats in any variant. A couple of years ago, they were available in the VX variant along with flat-folding and 60-40 split backrests.

What Is The Price Of The 2020 Honda Jazz Facelift?

The 2020 Jazz BS6 petrol is available in 3 variants - V, VX and ZX. All three variants are available with a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic transmission. The Jazz petrol MT starts at Rs. 7.5 lakh and the ZX variant costs Rs. 8.74 lakh

The Jazz petrol automatic costs between Rs. 8.5 lakh and Rs. 9,74 lakh. These prices are exactly Rs. 1.0 lakh more than the petrol manual variants, which is acceptable for a CVT-type automatic.

2020 Honda Jazz Facelift Petrol V vs VX Variant

 For this additional Rs. 60,000, you get features like:

  • 7-inch Touchscreen Infotainment System
  • Keyless Entry w/ Push Start/Stop Button
  • LED Wing Light
  • Apple CarPlay & Android Auto
  • Electrically Foldable ORVM
  • Turn Indicators on ORVMs
  • Voice Commands w/ Steering Controls
  • Additional USB Port
  • Leather Wrapped Steering & Gear Knob
  • Glossy Silver Finish Inside Door Handles
  • Silver Finish on Door Ornaments
  • Soft Touch Pad on Dashboard (Passenger Side)

Most of these features are style-oriented and the rest barely make it into the must-have category. Moreover, the asking price for the upgrade to the VX variant is not justified with these features. If you’re interested in the look and feel of the car from inside and outside, then, we’d rather recommend you to get the ZX variant. It’s a more value-for-money and also a fancier option than the VX.

2020 Honda Jazz Facelift Petrol VX vs ZX Variant

The top-spec ZX variant of the Jazz costs another Rs. 64,000 more than the VX’s ex-showroom price. The ZX petrol MT is priced at Rs. 8.74 lakh while the CVT automatic adds another Rs. 1.0 lakh to the price and shoots it up to Rs. 9.74 lakh.

For the additional price, you get 3 notable features:

  • LED fog lamps
  • Electric sunroof

Since the Jazz is based on the older City’s platform, it has a long wheelbase, it has a spacious cabin, to begin with. The addition of sunroof further enhances the feel inside the cabin to match the previous City’s higher variants. This variant better justifies the incremental asking price over the lower variants and will offer an upmarket cabin feel. This is the variant you should buy over the VX as it’s better equipped and better value for money.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The 2020 Honda Jazz Facelift Petrol?

The 2020 Jazz with 1.2L 4-cylinder BS6 petrol engine is among the more powerful engines in its segment. Polo turbo and Figo/Freestyle are the only other cars that make more power than the Jazz. The Baleno/Glanza’s hybrid petrol engines also make 90PS of power - the same as the Jazz.

While the Jazz’ power output is great, its torque peaks at a high 4800rpm and is the lowest in the segment after the Polo non-turbo. Thus, the Jazz petrol’s torque-to-weight ratio is also the second-lowest and comparable with the Elite i20’s. Expect modest performance from the Jazz at low RPMs and adequate at mid RPMs. Most of its punch is concentrated over 4000rpm. Unfortunately, we rarely attain and maintain those RPMs during normal city or even highway drives.

What Are The Dimensions Of The 2020 Honda Jazz Facelift?

The Jazz facelift has barely adequate performance but it does well in size. It has the biggest boot and the tallest roofline for great headroom. Its ground clearance is satisfactory for a hatchback but its tyre size is quite small. For a hatchback as expensive as the Jazz, we expect at least 195-section tyres and 16-inch wheels. The higher variants of the Altroz, Polo, i20 and Baleno/Glanza, all meet this requirement.
