Honda Jazz 2020

by admin | June 21, 2020


Has the new updated Jazz got enough oomph? Or are the just minor updates?

While the Jazz has been popular for being a spacious hatchback, some new updates ensure it stays updated with technology. Of course, a petrol and diesel BS6 engine is also something it receives but it just doesn’t stop there.

From what is expected, the new 2020 Jazz receives updates on the exterior. A fresh look at the front and rear is something which is most likely while the overall profile remains similar. The version displayed at the 2020 Auto Expo displays updates like LED DRL’s, Projector headlamps, new dual tone alloy wheels, LED tail lamps.

The new Jazz at the auto Expo also displays many changes to the interior. A new Dashboard, a two spoke steering wheel, new touch screen infotainment system, white highlights and an all new centre console, magic rear seats, cruise control, auto headlamps and auto wipers. We aren’t sure if all the updates would land in India but we do expect the Indian version of the 2020 Jazz to come with some updates, if not all.

The debuted version also comes with many safety features such as an electric parking brake, ABS, EBD, SENSING technology which is Honda’s collision mitigation braking using a wide angle camera in the front and eight sonar sensors.

Engine options for the India bound Honda Jazz 2020 could remain the same- the 1.2 Litre i-VTEC that produces 90 PS of power, 110 NM of torque and the 1.5 Litre i-DTEC engine that produces 100 PS, 200 NN of torque would most probably be upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms. The petrol option currently comes with a 5 speed manual and CVT transmission while the diesel option comes mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox only. However, the new Jazz Diesel could receive CVT transmission from the Diesel Honda Amaze.

When launched officially in India, the 2020 Honda Jazz will compete with Toyota Glanza, Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20, Tata Altroz. While it would feel more premium than the outgoing model, prices are expected to stay between Rs. 5.50 Lakhs and Rs. 9.50 Lakhs (ex- showroom).

    The new generation 2021 Mahindra XUV500 has been on test for more than a couple years now. Various exterior and interior details have been revealed by numerous Spy shots and videos. However now, a new video has surfaced online, uploaded by Mohini Sharma on December 17th. The spy video gives us a first look at the entire interior of what seems to be the mid spec variant of the new XUV500.

    Interior:

    First, the interior seems to get a dual tone, beige and black theme. The dashboard features two massive screens for infotainment, including the digital cluster. This mid spec variant also

    has a panoramic sunroof along with beige leather seats. The front passenger seat also seems to get an adjustment flap-lever on the right side to provide extra legroom for the chauffeur-driven.

    The model seen in the video gets a flat-bottom leather wrapped steering wheel with cruise control and other controls as well. However the car gets only a manual switch for the day/night IRVM and a manual handbrake lever. The rear AC vents have moved towards the end of the center console instead of their earlier location on the B pillars. The top spec variants will get Dual-zone climate control as well. The seats seem larger than before and also seem to get longer squabs with better bolstering. The 2nd row seats get a 60:40 split folding function and a center armrest as well. Sadly, unlike the current model, the middle passenger doesn't seem to get a separate headrest.

    The 3rd row seats seem larger than before and get a 50:50 split folding function just like the current model. The boot space, though small, is larger than the current gen model. The top spec variant is expected to get a powered tailgate as well.

    Exterior:

    After so many years of testing, the Mahindra XUV500 is near production ready. The exterior features LED headlights with signature LED DRLs, a large 7-slat grille, functional roof rails, 17” alloy wheels with 235 section tyres and all-wheel disc brakes as well.

    High-tech features:

    Mahindra also seems to be testing some advanced electronic safety and driver assistance systems on the new XUV500. These included a radar system, eyelid tracking tech and autonomous braking. Another feature which was reportedly getting tested was a 3D panoramic vision feature which would help the driver while reversing the car.

    However, these high-tech features are not likely to make it into production, atleast for now. That said, the new XUV500 is definitely expected to get a significant level of connected car tech and smart features.

    Engines:

    The 2021 XUV500 will get 2 engine options. The 2.2 litre mHawk diesel engine will be upgraded to produce around 170bhp of power, mated to 6 speed manual and automatic gearboxes. The new M-stallion 2.0L, 4 cylinder turbo petrol is also expected to be offered with the same transmission options. Similar to the Thar lifestyle SUV, this turbo petrol engine is expected to produce 150bhp of Max Power. Like the current gen model, the new XUV is also expected to offer AWD option on the top spec variants.

    Launch and pricing:

    The new XUV500 is expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2021 and will compete against rivals like the Tata Harrier and the Gravitas, Jeep Compass, MG Hector and Hector plus, Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta. Similar to the first gen model, we can expect a ground breaking pricing strategy for the new gen XUV500 as well. This new second generation model is expected to be priced between ?13-22L, comprising a lot of variants.

    Stay tuned for further updates on the new XUV500.

    Exterior

    The production-spec Nissan Magnite seems to retain most of the concept’s design elements including the large grille, the Sharp creases and the funky alloy wheels. It has even the same sculpted bonnet and angular headlights. Since the Magnite was originally meant to be launched as a Datsun, the grille bears resemblance to the other Datsun models.

    The side profile looks muscular with prominent body cladding and large wheel arches which seem to dwarf the 16” wheels. The higher spec variants also receive a dual-tone roof option, blacked-out pillars and silver roof rails. At the back, the Magnite sports sharp looking tail lamps which resemble those on the Triber's, a clean tail gate and a dual tone bumper. The Magnite is also set to be the first model in India to sport the new Nissan logo.

    Interior

    The interior too is quite close to the concept with a large, centrally mounted 8” touchscreen and layered dashboard with hexagonal AC vents.

    Powertrain

    The Nissan Magnite will be available with two engine options. The first will be the 1.0L Energy series, 3 cylinder Naturally aspirated engine from the Renault Triber, producing 72PS Power through a 5 speed manual gearbox. The second powertrain will be a new HRA0 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol unit producing around 100PS (97bhp) of power and 160Nm of torque which will be mated to a 5 speed manual transmission option as well as an X-TRONIC CVT automatic gearbox. 

    The new HRA0 1.0 3 cylinder turbocharged engine will get mirror bore cylinder coating technology from its legendary sport's car Nissan GT-R which will help to reduce the resistance inside the powertrain and also it will increase the overall efficiency of the engine.

    The XE variant will be available only with the 1.0L naturally aspirated engine.

    Flare Garnet Red With Onyx Black, 
    Vivid Blue With Strom White, Tourmaline Brown onyx Black, Onyx Black,
