According to our internal data, the VX variant’s added features do not fully justify its incremental cost of Rs 60,000 over the V variant.

Since most of the additional features of the VX variant are not must-have in nature, and as the V variant covers all basic features and also offers some good-to-have features, we would recommend that you choose the base V variant.

If the touchscreen infotainment system is an important feature for you, for which you are considering the VX variant, then we suggest that you get the V variant and retrofit a touchscreen unit. This can be a plug-and-play fitment and won’t affect your car warranty. 

What Are The Features of Honda Jazz ZX Variant? 

The Jazz ZX variant is Rs 64,000 more expensive than the VX variant, in case of the manual transmission, while in case of automatic transmission it is around Rs 55,000 more expensive.

Honda Jazz Petrol Variants - Which One To Buy?

Now let us sum up all the variant-wise recommendations of the 2021 Honda Jazz to make your buying decision easier. 

In case of both manual and automatic transmission options, our top recommendation is the V variant. Despite being the entry-level variant, the V variant mostly covers all the must-have features and also offers some good-to-have features as well.

Above the V variant, the VX variant is a bit expensive in terms of value. If you are eyeing to buy the VX variant, primarily to get the touchscreen infotainment system, then we would recommend that you go for the V variant instead and retrofit the touchscreen system.
