Today, Honda Cars India (HCIL) announced that pre-booking for the refreshed new Jazz 2020 has begun. The premium hatchback has been tweaked to display sportier stylings and is now loaded with an impressive range of features. The new Jazz will run on a BS-6 compliant 1.2L i-VTEC Petrol engine that can be paired with either Manual or CVT transmission.
The Jazz B-segment made its initial worldwide debut back in 2001 and has had a fairly successful run since.
The refreshed new Jazz 2020 for India will come with a sporty design that includes a new ‘High Gloss Black Grill’ with Chrome accents. Additionally, it is also fitted with bright new LED Headlamps (Inline Shell) with DRLs as part of an advanced LED package, and new LED Fog lamps as well.
The premium hatchback will also introduce the segment unique ‘One Touch Electric Sunroof’ and will also upscale convinience of cruise control. Not to mention its one of a kind (segment’s only) steering-wheel-mounted unique dual mode “Paddle Shift” option available for the CVT variant – which also happens to be responsible for 70% of total Jazz sales in the last year.
Speaking on this, Senior VP and Director (marketing & Sales) Honda Cars India Ltd., Mr Rajesh Goel said: “We are excited to open the bookings for the new Jazz which is slated for launch later this month. The new Jazz with its stylish sporty new look, outstanding interior package and segment-unique One Touch Electric Sunroof will appeal to the customers who are looking for the absolute best in the segment”
Touched up with redesigned front and rear bumpers, ample space and premium interiors, the Jazz is sure to make a profitable run. Pre-booking can be done at a rate of Rs 21000 at all authorized HCIL dealerships across the country. The ‘Honda from Home’ platform on their website also offers the option of online pre-booking at Rs 5000.
In other news, Honda Cars India also saw an exponential 285% growth in sales for July 2020 as opposed to June 2020 with 5,383 units being sold in the domestic market. Honda seems to be gradually increasing production and sales as effects of the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are easing.
