Honda Jazz: Variants Explained

Honda Jazz has been in the Indian car market for a long time now and has a reputation for being one of the most practical premium hatchbacks on sale. The car can give even some compact sedans a run for their money when it comes to cabin and cargo space, while the features are also at par with the competition. It is available in five variants with a special add-on called the privilege edition also in stores. Prices for the Honda Jazz begin from Rs 5.89 lakh and stretch out to Rs 9.19 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Honda Jazz is available in E, S, SV, V and VX variants. Find out which variant is the most preferred and whether you should go with the popular sentiment or pick your own favorite variant. Read on to find out.

Honda Jazz: Specifications

Honda Jazz: Engine Options

Honda Jazz E

  • Black finished front grille

  • 14-inch steel wheels

  • Black ORVMs and door handles

  • MID with Blue backlight

  • Single tripmeter

  • One-touch lane indicator

  • Beige seat upholstery

  • Rear folding bench seat

  • AC with heater and pollen filter

  • Power steering with tilt adjust

  • 4 Power Windows

  • Dual front airbags(std)

  • ABS (Diesel only)

  • Day/night IRVM

  • Seatbelt reminder and immobilizer

  • 1 grab rail

The entry level Jazz is a bare bones option and lacks several basic features and we would advise you to steer clear of this one, especially if you are opting for the petrol option which misses out even on the ABS. Those looking for diesel, however, can continue if they just want the frugal diesel and can make do with an aftermarket audio system but without an accessory socket. The smaller wheels are also a deterrent with this variant which don’t do justice to the wide contoured body of Jazz. The petrol is priced at Rs 5.89 lakh, while the diesel retails at Rs 7.24 lakh.

Honda Jazz S

  • Gloss and chrome front grille

  • 15-inch tyres with wheel covers

  • Body-coloured door handle and ORVM

  • Shift Position Indicator (CVT Only)

  • Silver garnish on steering and front console

  • 3.5 inch audio system with Aux-In, Bluetooth, USB, i-Pod, AM/FM Radio, MP3

  • Steering integrated audio controls

  • 4 speakers and accessory socket

  • Height adjustable driver seat

  • Cargo light

  • Electrically Adjustable ORVM

  • 3 grab rails

  • Rear windshield defogger

By paying a premium of Rs 68,000 over the base diesel and 64,000 over the base petrol, you can get all these important features which will simplify daily usage considerably. A company fitted audio system which has decent sound quality, charging sockets, rear windshield defogger and bigger wheels add to its daily usability. The packaging is also much more premium with chrome garnish on parts inside and out. The S variant is available with a CVT gearbox for Rs 1.08 lakh over the petrol manual, and also gets ABS with EBD. The real pinch will be to the petrol manual buyer who doesn’t get the brake assist feature despite shelling out nearly Rs 7 lakh on a hatchback.

Honda Jazz: Variants Explained

Honda Jazz SV

  • Rear micro antenna

  • Advanced MID with LCD display with Eco assist

  • Instant fuel consumption indicator with cruising range

  • Dual trip meter

  • 5-inch integrated screen and CD player

  • Map light

  • Rear parking camera

  • Front fog lamps

  • Driver one touch up/down windows

  • Speed volume compensation

This variant commands an additional Rs 40,000 for the diesel and Rs 43,000 for the petrol, over the S variant. Those going for diesel can do with the S model rather than jumping to the SV, unless they really need a parking camera for help with the superficial Eco mode. As far as petrol manual buyers are concerned, they can go for this variant as it gets ABS with EBD as well for the price. 

Honda Jazz V

  • Rear wiper and washer

  • 15-inch alloy wheels

  • Electrically foldable ORVM with turn indicator

  • Outside temperature display

  • Leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob

  • Auto Climate with capacitive touch controls

For an additional amount of Rs 35,000 on petrol and Rs 45,000 on diesel, you get a premium looking package from outside and a likeable one from the inside. Some features on this model cannot be retrofitted and is decent value for money. The CVT petrol can be yours for an additional Rs 1 lakh over the manual. From customer surveys, it is evident that the Honda Jazz V i-DTEC is the highest selling variant.

Honda Jazz VX

  • Rear Spoiler

  • Front & rear mudguard

  • 6.2-inch touchscreen AVN System with DVD Player

  • Black fabric

  • Seat back pockets

  • Magic seats with 60:40 split and reclining option

The price difference between the V and the VX for petrol and diesel is Rs 49,000 and Rs 42,000 respectively. For the additional amount, you get a touchscreen system with navigation. It also gets Honda’s coveted magic seats which will help gobble up ridiculous amounts of luggage for the long journeys, making it a versatile companion. While it's a handy feature to have, if you have another bigger car or don’t pack too much baggage while travelling, we think you can opt for the ‘V’ variant which is preferred by most and is better value.

Honda Jazz Privilege edition

  • Honda’s 7-inch Digipad touchscreen with HDMI, MicroSD and USB inputs, built-in storage of 1.5GB

  • Live traffic updates and voice command option

  • Honda Connect connected car services

  • Rear parking sensors 

The Privilege edition is an add-on which offers a good value for the extra amount of Rs 5,000 over the top-of-the-line variant. To single it out from regular variants it gets ‘Privilege’ insignia on seats, mats and on the boot too.
