It is not a new music band, but the new Honda auto tuning up the roads. No matter how many puzzles you have played, you always were left blank at some point. Similarly with the Honda Jazz whatever you try to fill it up with, there is always some space.
Exterior: It can easily be your new home with its unbelievable space. Clearly Honda's expertise can be seen in every inch of the car. The key is the cab-forward and central fuel tank which gives the big space though it has a shorter wheel base. Unlike other hatchback biggies like the Hyundai i20, the Honda jazz is still a space apart from the rest. The design is consciously made with path-breaking patterns, despite its MPV-like proportions, the appearance is terrific. The Jazz also looks futuristic compared to the Honda's usual style. The front with the large triangular headlights is stunning. The bonnet catches has a strong chin which is suited to its aggressive front stance. The rear wheel arch with cuts at side of the car and the wide windshield at the back makes the car look niche.
Engine: It comes with 89 bhp is an 1198 cc petrol engine vehicle. The 1.2-litre engine is not the same as the Maruti and Hyundai which gives two overhead camshafts for better performance and drive. Still Honda's i-VTEC system is flexible and efficient. The Honda Jazz has a responsive accelerator and is good at low speeds as well. The journey in traffic is really smooth. It easily gets past 5000rpm and races to the 6500rpm redline. Zero to 100kph comes up in 13.2seconds with 120 taking a total of 18.6sec. Probably, the Honda Jazz is the fastest in its category. As usual the gear box shifts are a charm and makes no fuss during the transmission.
Interiors: It is complete with stylish interiors. It has mounted audio controls. The dash board is wide with the glove compartment. The multimedia system is adorned with four speakers and easily fits 5 passengers. Compared to its predecessors it surely has more space.
