The Honda Jazz was always destined to get the BS6 update in India. Now the company has finally launched the car at the starting price of Rs.7.50 lakh. Find out below about the Top 5 things about the Honda Jazz 2020.
1) Engine and Performance
The 2020 BS6 Honda Jazz comes with the same old 1.2L petrol engine which has been updated to comply with BS6 standards. The four-cylinder petrol engine produces a maximum power output of 90hp. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and CVT transmission with segment-first paddle shifters. The automatic version of the Honda Jazz is far more popular than the manual counterpart.
The Honda Jazz 2020 BS6 comes with an ARAI claimed mileage of 16.6kmpl with manual transmission and 17.1kmpl with automatic transmission. There is no diesel engine on offer with the new Jazz. The old Diesel engine has been updated to BS6 and is used in City, Amaze but has been ditched from Jazz due to its low demand.
2) Exterior Changes
The overall styling of the car is pretty similar to its predecessor. It is still the third-generation Honda Jazz design with BS6 compatibility. You get minor tweaks like the redesigned front bumper, LED headlamps unit, LED fog lamps, chrome detailing and LED headlamps. The rear bumper too has some new touches added to it.
3) Any new features?
Most of the changes in the 2020 BS6 Honda Jazz can be seen here. The new Honda Jazz is the only car in its segment to get a sunroof. You get a new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Keyless Entry, Push button start, 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, and a rear wiper are new additions.
Honda has also paid adequate attention to the safety of the car and features like Dual airbags, ABS, Reverse Camera and Rear Defogger are standard across all the variants.
4) Interior Changes
The interiors are quite similar to the previous Jazz sold in the Indian market. A new soft-touch surface on the dashboard can be considered a new addition. You get dual-tone interiors with Black and Beige Colour scheme. Magic seats which were a USP of the previous Jazz are absent here. You still get fairly comfortable rear seats with fixed headrests and a large 354-litre boot.
5) Price and Competition

The base variant costs just Rs.5000 more than the BS4 model of the car. The ZX variant still costs a lot more compared to the previous top variant due to the new features and sunroof. The Honda Jazz 2020 BS6 still costs the most among its competition.
