Pros : Space, Comfort, Luxury, Music System

Cons : Price, low ground clearence.

Look and Style: Its a space age design.. like a pod moving out from it mothership. Comfort: Top of the class. absolutely no compromises which are so evident in other hatchbacks. Its surely a class above in all respect.  The space is evident from the fact that you cant drive with the right elbow placed on the window the elbows would not reach there. Pickup: A bit of a let down. But still good enough for city drive. Mileage: Way better than what I had expected. Gives me 16+ in city with heater on. Have had it only over the winter so the AC was not fully tested. In last 15 -20 days of the summer the millage has been about 15+ with 100% AC. The best I have had was 23 KMP on the highway over the 100 km run.    Running at a constant speed between 90-100kmph on the Taj express way in Noida. Best Features: Space(magic seats), Comfort, Music System, Safety features, refinement of the engine. I’m 5’ 10 and this was the only car in which I legs did NOT hit the steering column of the sides. Needs to improve: The middle section of the rear seat is a bit uncomfortable. Bluetooth support for mobile would be a good add on. Seat height adjustment should be provided as an option in all the versions. Overall Experience: In one word 'Amazing'.  This was the first car for me and everyone around said Jazz is over-expensive and asked me to avoid it. Some how the looks and feel of the car, the test drive and the showroom experience made me go for it..  And I will never ever regret that decision..   its absolutely worth the price as the features and quality of the components are a notch better than City. And the space is like out of the world, I have carries 5 BIG strollers suitcases in it and it still had some space for the fish aquarium and Guitar  :) The AC is just amazing. The real test would come in the peak summer. The front seat as almost instantly cooled and it hardly takes a coupe of min or so to cool the entire car. This with the temp already at 35 deg.  is not a bad feat at all.

    Now that the summer temp has touched 40 mark, how is the AC performance? Will appreciate a quick response as I am in the process of finalizing my new buy. Thanks and regards.

    It still works very well in the morning and evenings were it hardly takes a few (1-2) min to feel comfortable. with temp of about early 30s But during the mid day it takes a considerable time, would say 5-6 min for the front seat and close to 10 min in for the rear. I have a black car and the windows are not glazed. So considering this and that temp is above 40 degree, I would still call it good. .

    And yes.. if possible try and get the Michelin tires.. the MRFs are not great and have a lot of noise, which I am facing.. . if u are already close to finalizing.. I guess budget is not a constraint.. I can assure that you would never regret the buying the jazz..

    Now u must have completed a few months with ur Jazz how is it performing now? And please tell me which tyre do the provide in Jazz Select? Should I ask for Michelin tyres ? will they consider it? I have already made my decision to buy this car so, need a last confirmation from u. Presently I am driving Maruti Zen which has great pick up. Is Jazzs pick up a problem? Pls do reply soon

    The performance is good for a 1.2 engine.. but do not expect the pick of a zen.. yes it would beat the zen on a 1km run.. but not with the initial pickup. I have absolutely nothing against the jazz. except for the lethargic pickup with AC on, which i really do not bother much about.. as on a longer run it really sizzles.. and I'm not much interested in ripping it out at every signal... it gets to 100-120 in a breeze and very very steady at that speed with no discomfort from the engine. As for tires the MRF rubbers that I have make a lot of noise. have heard others taking a lot better about the Michelin, So I would suggest you try for it. I was told that they have alternate assembly with MRF and Michelin so you may need to wait if you don't have one in stock..
