The Honda Jazz hatchback from Honda Siel Cars India, which is all set to grace Indian roads shortly, will now drive in with an India specific engine. It has been confirmed that the Jazz will feature a 1.2 litre i-VTEC unit that has been designed for optimal drivability and efficiency.

The powertrain for the Jazz is a four cylinder, 1198 cc state of the art i-VTEC engine that features Programmed Fuel Injection which allows the unit to develop a healthy 90PS @ 6,200 rpm and a decent torque figure of 112Nm @ 4800 rpm. As per ARAI test data, the Jazz is capable of returning a fuel efficiency of 16.1 kmpl, however real world test conditions will give a clearer picture on this front once the car is tested. Like all Honda engines today, the 1.2 i-VTEC unit is also E10 compatible and meets Euro IV emission norms.

Like all Honda engines, which are truly gems in their own right, the 1.2 litre i-VTEC is also expected to live up to the refined and frugal nature that Honda is known for producing. The Jazz is set for a June debut and is expected to be priced around the Rs 7 lakh price bracket. It might sound expensive, but as of right now its more of a wait and watch game to see just what Honda packs into this hatchback to make it worth the moolah.

Fuel Type Petrol
Cubic Capacity 1198cc
