December 14, 2015: Spyshots of Honda Jazz’s cladding-laced crossover have surfaced for the first time. The 2016 Honda Jazz crossover prototype was spied making rounds on the streets of Brazil. It is highly probable that the crossover will be named ‘Honda Jazz Twist’. The previous generation of this crossover was exclusive to Brazilian market but considering the hospitable Indian market conditions and popularity of Honda Jazz, there is a possibility that the car will make its way to India.

Honda Jazz review



When it first debuted, the Honda Jazz was widely known for being a car way ahead of its time. It attempted to kick-start the premium hatchback category in the country - and failed miserably! With lacklustre sales, Honda was forced to sell the Jazz with huge discounts just to clear their inventory. However, the new generation comes in at a time where the market is lapping up premium hatchbacks by the dozen. Does it do anything differently than the previous one? Let’s find out:


1. Space. Unparalleled knee-room and headroom at the rear bench.

2. 354 litre boot is the biggest in its class. Outclasses most compact sedans.

3. Mature ride quality. Does not thud into potholes like the Polo, does not feel bouncy like the i20 either.


1.Noisy diesel motor. Elite i20 and Baleno sound and feel much more refined.

2. Features like the start stop button, steering reach adjustment and rear air convents are not available even on the top end variant.

Stand-Out Features:

1. Magic Seats - The rear seats can be folded in a variety of combinations. The Jazz can be converted into a mini van on demand.

2. Paddle shifters on the automatic. The Polo GT TSi should have had this.


The Jazz is easily one of the most practically designed cars in the hatchback segment. It offers high levels of interior space and comfort along with lots of utility. All this while looking stunning on the outside.

Originally offered only with a petrol variant it is now offered with a 1.2 litre i-VTEC petrol engine, and a 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel engine.


The vehicle stands out with its cool styling, setting itself apart from conventional hatchbacks of the day such as the Swift and the Elite i20. Its exterior design is MPV-ish and Honda likes to call it the crossfade monoform design. The hood flows up into the slanted windscreen in an unbroken streak, giving the car an elegant stance.

At the front, the slender V-shaped grille in piano black and a touch of chrome is a welcome change from the chrome filled fronts.Slender, City-like headlamps flank the large grille.

Fog lamps have been jammed into the corner of the skirts, and we personally think that they help to weave a more harmonious image altogether. One can spot a blank vertical slot next to the foglamps. The international version gets drls mounted here.

We think that the Jazz could have done with daytime-running lamps considering both - the Baleno and the Elite i20 have them.

Coming to the side, the subtle curvatures on the wheel arches with the vibrant body line at the bottom work well together. The strong belt-line runs through the door handles, stretching from the front wheel arch to the top of the rear-side.

The 15” inch alloy wheels have a fuss-free ‘turbine’ design. That said, we would have loved to see fatter rubber on the Jazz. A similar problem plagues its elder sibling - the Honda City as well.

The rear is a throwback to the previous generation. The tail-lamps look similar to the outgoing version, save for the reflector extensions running upto the roof. Top-trims get a smart little spoiler too.

The rear 3/4th is our favorite angle on the new Jazz!

The Honda is a clear case of clever packaging. A look at the dimensions and you would realize that it isn’t the longest nor the widest car in its class. However, it trumps every other car in its class when you consider sheer space and utility on the inside.


Open the large doors and an all black theme welcomes you. They do instill a sense of Deja Vu - it borrows heavily from the Honda City.

The centre console sits at the focus, and it comes with a very neat assortment of buttons and switches. The piano black finish for the entire console brings a more resplendent aura to the entire cabin.

We're sure that you'll love the 6.2 inch touch screen that is incorporated into the console, and a noteworthy point is that it comes along with DVD playback, navigation and can play music from a host of inputs.

Arranged right beneath this is a feather-touch climate control screen, with controls spread out right underneath it. While it does look cool and futuristic, operating it on the go is a bit of a bother. While we have no complaints on the performance of the air-conditioning, we have to point out that the fan is awfully loud.

Integrated into the centre console, in front of the gear-knob are two cup holders. Three more storage slots have been put in place of the armrest, and this may go as a strong bonus for some, and a slash in comfort for others.

The steering wheel is just the right size and feels good to hold. However, it skips out on telescopic adjustment (VW Polo has it). The wheel is shared with the Honda City. The difference, notably, is the lack of cruise control buttons. The basic audio controls have been incorporated into the left, while the telephone buttons are placed behind the wheel.

As for the instrument cluster, the dials lack the illuminated blue rings that you'd find in the City. The three-pod instrument cluster house the tachometer, speedometer and an MID respectively. The MID reads out trip details and average fuel efficiency. The pod also houses an instantaneous FE meter, a readout for the outside temperature and the fuel gauge.

The front seats hug you well. There is decent amount of bolstering for lateral support. Even people with heftier builds will have no reason to complain here. Cushioning is adequate and the seat also gets height adjust. Getting into a comfortable driving position is not a big task, although a telescopic adjust on the steering wheel would have made it much easier.

The rear bench is amongst the most spacious in its segment. Sitting three abreast is possible. Kneeroom and headroom is amongst the best in its class. A noteworthy feature is that the rear bench can recline by a couple of degrees to the back. For someone who dislikes the upright seating posture, the reclined posture keeps the lower back a lot happier.

The Jazz also gets something Honda chooses to call ‘Magic Seats’. The rear bench can be folded in myriad combinations, enabling the user to tailor space according to the cargo. A segment exclusive feature, which is sadly restricted to the top-trims.

Boot Space is a jaw-dropping 354 litres. The Baleno comes a close second with 339 litres of space on offer.



The diesel motor is shared with the Honda City and so is the 6 - speed manual transmission. Driveability is a strong point with the diesel Jazz. Turbo lag is well controlled - there isn’t that annoying wait till 2000rpm for the torque to kick in ( a la 1.3 DDiS/Multijet). Power delivery is linear and it won’t push you into your seat as say a Volkswagen Polo will when you pin the throttle. The 200Nm of torque is extremely useable, you can pull from a gear higher with ease. Out on the highways too, the Jazz feels confident. It is limited to 140km/h (like the Amaze) - but it can sustain those speeds quite easily.

Much like the sedan, the Jazz too is extremely loud and clattery on idle. The culprit here is the aluminum block that Honda has used to keep the engine light. Vibration levels are substantially higher than competition too. Vibrations can be felt on the pedals at idling rpms.


The petrol mill is a 1.2-litre I-VTEC engine that displaces 1199cc. You can opt for a 5-speed manual or a 7-speed CVT automatic with the petrol motor. The engine is relatively unchanged from the older Jazz. Naturally, it is one of the quietest engines around. Much quieter than the 3 cylinder motor on the Polo for example.

The low-end on the petrol motor is properly weak. You do need to go heavy on the throttle to get it going. If you aren’t used to driving Honda cars, be ready to stall this one a couple of times before you get used to it. Mid-range is where the fun lies. Within the city, you would find yourself frequently downshifting to get a move on. Out on the highway too the motor doesn’t do all that well. How we wish that Honda had plonked the bigger 1.5 litre petrol motor (from the City) in the Jazz’ engine bay!

The automatic version gets a conventional CVT setup. While the gearbox works just fine for cantering around the city, it feels confused when the right foot is planted hard down. It revs the engine all the way to the redline, where neither the engine nor the gearbox feel at ease. Key to note that the AT also gets paddle shifters for the driver to shift gears at whim.

Ride and Handling:

The front arm of the chassis has been rigged with McPherson strut, while a torsion beam sits at the rear. You would be relieved to find the ride quality strengthened with the presence of coil springs for both axles. The new and tweaked suspension set-up is great for the overall ride, for it effortlessly tackles potholes and other regular anomalies of Indian roads. Also a thing of the past is the annoying 'thuds' that you hear when driving on unsteady roads. The company has clearly aimed to decimate all ride discomforts with this new version, and we've got to say that they have succeeded. Aside from this, discs at the front wheels and drums at the rear wheels help to cement an efficient and safe braking performance.


There are a host of safety facilities, both old and new, that help to secure the ride. An ACE body structure helps to absorb impacts without causing damage to the cabin and the passengers. Meanwhile, the front passengers are shielded with the presence of SRS airbags. An anti lock braking system and electronic brakeforce distribution augment drive stability, reduce the risks of any mishaps. Along with all of this, there is also a rear parking camera, front fog lamp, driver seatbelt reminder, key-off reminder, dual-type horn, rear windshield defogger, LED high mount stop lamp, Day/Night rearview mirror and an immobiliser that asserts the security of the vehicle as well.


The lower end variants, E and S, come with minimal features, such as a multi-information combimeter with blue illumination, a fuel consumption display, and an eco assist system and a one touch lane change indicator. Meanwhile, the mid variant, SV comes with some more interesting functions, such as an instantaneous fuel economy display, an outside temperature display, a dual trip meter, an illuminated light adjuster dial and a one touch lane change indicator. Meanwhile, the top end trims, V and VX, come with an exhaustive list of features, ranging from an advanced audio integrated with 15.7cm touch-screen, hands-free telephone and a CD player.


Honda has stuck to the age-old recipe for the Jazz. Like they say - If it ain’t broke, why change it? The core strengths of the Jazz remain the interior space and the humongous boot. If you need nothing else but a spacious hatch - the Jazz is right up your alley. If space isn’t a big requirement look towards Hyundai or even the Nexa showrooms.
