Apart from these variants, a Jazz RS version (a sportier version of the 1.5 iVTEC) would also be seen apart from two Mugen tuned variants.

We believe that India would get the new Jazz in early 2014. Apart from an i-VTEC petrol engine, the Indian Jazz should also get an Earth Dreams diesel engine.

While the Jazz has several rivals in India, Honda’s Terumasa Kotada, Senior Ride and Handling Engineer, says that the VW Polo has been used as a direct benchmark.

“In upping our game, we wanted to make a stronger international competitor, so we benchmarked our Fit on the Polo. The moment you get in the Polo, you notice how low you sit in the car. This instils confidence. Then when you drive the Polo, you notice how low its roll centre is and its huge stability levels, instilling even more confidence,” he said.

The all new Jazz sees a 60mm increase in its length and most of that goes in enhancing the rear legroom. The boot has also increased to about 400 litres.

There is a good chance you can catch the Jazz in India at the Auto Expo in February 2014.
