We bought this car in 2015 September, so before this we had a maruti alto 2008 make and it was serving us good, but after we needed a car that can do highway duties also, in 2015 we had options like I20, Swift and Jazz was recently launched, When we visited the showroom, I was in love with the space that the jazz offers. Buying experience was quiet good.
The engine that comes with jazz is the 1.2 i-ivtec petrol engine, it is very good engine and very refined, one can hardly tell if it is on, it is that much silence.
In city it does the Job very good and offer good mileage if driven with light foot.
On highway it can cruise at 100 easily but after that it feels noisy, for overtaking you have to downshift it.
In my opinion honda 1.5 litre petrol should have been given jazz as option for those who are looking for some performance.
Details about looks, performance.
I think Jazz looks good it has a mature design and styling however from side profile it looks like a small muv or station wagon.
Taking about performance Jazz is not a performance car or fun to drive car like polo gt, It is a family car that will do the job neatly.
Servicing and maintenance
servicing is bit on a expensive side, the company service station executive will add unnecessary stuff in your job card , to me 10000 interval service will cost you around 7000-8000 rupees.
talking about maintenance all car parts are working well except alternator has been replaced after 4 years of running.
Acres of space jazz offers, good headroom, legroom.
class leading boot in that segment.
Decent build quality
Safety features like front two airbags, abs with ebd.
Feels underpowered on highway.
lacks old Honda's build quality that old city or civic or accord had.
low mileage in city.
