Let’s get one thing straight right here. The 2020 Honda Jazz for India is merely an update and is not to be confused with the next gen Jazz that was revealed abroad last year and won’t be coming to India. What we get is a mildly refreshed version of the third gen Jazz that has been on sale here since 2015.

Design Changes

The update brings minor styling revisions including a new front bumper and new chrome detailing around the gloss black front grille. The refresh jazz is best identified by its new all-led headlights and led fog lamps. The tail lamps do get the led treatment and the rear bumper sees minor styling tweaks as well.

On the inside too the Honda Jazz 2020 is quite similar to the version that’s been on sale for all these years. The design of the dashboard remains the same as before with the center console angled towards the driver, but the dash now sports a soft touch pad. The interior gets a blackened beige color scheme and the Jazz continues to have one of the most spacious cabins in its class as well as a really large 354 litre boot. However, once again the jazz is much loved and the theater style folding magic seats are absent and the headrests for the rear seat passengers are fixed too.


It’s in the features department where the updated Jazz sees the biggest changes. Led lighting aside, one of the highlights with this update is the addition of an electric sunroof making the jazz the only hatchback in its segment to have this feature. Also, on the equipment list are a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with apple Car Play and Android Auto. Cruise Control which is now also available on the manual variants, push button start, keyless entry, 15-inch alloy wheels and a rear wiper. Standard safety equipment includes dual-airbags, ABS, a reverse camera and a rear defogger.

Engine and Gearbox Options

The Honda Jazz 2020 gets the same 90 horsepower 1.2 liter four-cylinder petrol engine but it now meets bs6 emission standards. Gearbox options include a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic, with the latter being the only automatic in the segment with steering mounted paddle shifters. Interestingly Honda announced that the CVT version accounted for a whopping 70 of total Jazz sales in the country last year. Fuel efficiency is rated at 16.6 kpl for the manual Jazz and 17.1 kpl for the CVT version. However, those interested in a diesel version of the jazz will be disappointed to know that Honda has dropped the 1.5 liter diesel from the Jazz lineup. The engine has been upgraded to meet bs6 emission norms and continues to power models such as the City, Amaze and WRV but has been axed from the Jazz due to poor demand.

Honda Jazz 2020 Price

  • V MT – Rs. 7,49,900
  • VX MT – Rs. 8,09,900
  • ZX MT – Rs. 8,73,900
  • V CVT – Rs. 8,49,900
  • VX CVT – Rs. 9,09,900
  • ZX CVT – Rs. 9,73,900

Both manual and automatic versions of the updated Jazz are available in a total of three trim levels V, VX and ZX. Prices start at Rs. 7.5 lakh for the base V trim which is only about Rs. 5,000 more than the bs4 model and goes all the way up to Rs. 9.74 lakh for the fully loaded CVT version. That’s significantly higher than before but that’s because the ZX variant with its electric sunroof is a new addition to the lineup compared to its rivals. The updated Jazz is still the priciest of the lot with the asking price for the entry level model much higher than that for the Toyota Glanza, Tata Altroz, Maruti Baleno and the outgoing Hyundai i20. All variants of the Jazz are fairly well equipped with even the entry-level V-trim packing 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, steering mounted controls, automatic climate control and the same safety kit as the higher spec models.
