A Car that Is Music To Your Ears

In one word the Jazz is astoundingly spacious for a little car. Do not let the exteriors fool you. The exteriors do not really do justice to the large interior space inside this little car. This enormous space is because of Honda’s ‘Super Forward Form’. A concept where the car’s overall packaging mainly revolves around maximum space utilization.
In the case of Jazz the bonnet is like any other MPV. You will not find any transmission tunnel to the fuel tank. The tank is mounted under the front seats which releases a massive amount of space in the car. Honda has also done a commendable job on the interiors. The materials used, the way it is put together, choice of colors and the upholstery all are very neatly tucked in.
The car has ten cup holders. There is so much space in the
car that you might even a need a map to find where you put what. In fact one cannot help wonder who would need
so much space. The seats themselves are comfortable; the driving controls are
laid out nicely. The inside does make up for an enjoyable experience. The music
system is just about okay.
The engine itself is a 16 valve, 1198 cc, four cylinder that
manages to make 90 break horse power. The car also meets the Euro four norms.
The car is not a power horse but it is not a dead horse either when the engine
is at low. In fact the engine relishes when you throttle it a bit. Once the
engine is spinning you get to see the car in its true elements. As usual the
gear shifts are smooth, the suspension is well tested and with a decent wheel
base the car does make it presence felt on the road. It absorbs most of the
bumps. The handling quality is very likeable too. The entire car reacts well to
the steering commands. The electric power assistance helps maintain fuel
All the variants come with airbags, disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the back. The car has also successfully grabbed the five star for crash safety at the Euro NCAP test. The car also worked on the eco friendliness by using fewer hazardous materials like ice cream, pork fat, cadmium etc.
The basic variant starts from a price range of Rs 6.98 lakh
ex-showroom Delhi. But do not get fooled by the base variant tag, the car has
all the safety elements. The next version called the Active costs 7.28 lakhs
The Jazz is expensive but it offers significant value for your money. Also one must not forgot the huge warranty coverage that is up to four years or 80,000 km. With Honda’s excellent service quality levels the only thing that Honda must ensure is to get the people in the show room and try out the car. This is one area where Honda has never had any trouble getting sorted.
