Honda Jazz 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 Tata Tiago is one among the best small hatchbacks in India and it is also the best seller for Tata motors. It offers segment best safety standards, comfortable cabin and robust mechanicals. The XT variant onwards gets a 2DIN infotainment system with the XZ variant onwards receiving a touchscreen unit with steering mounted audio controls till date.

    However now, the XT variant too gets steering mounted audio controls with Bluetooth telephony, paired to the touch based monochrome head unit. This improves driver focus towards the road, without the need to take their

    hands off the steering wheel.

    The XT Variant gets a 2DIN audio system with 4 Harman speakers which sound impressive. The head unit offers reverse sensor monitor with NaviMaps & Juke car app compatibility as well. The steering mounted audio controls are now a part of standard equipment on this Variant with a price increase of just Rs.1000. The Tiago XT now is priced at Rs.5.34L ex showroom.

    Apart from the additional feature, the new range of Tata Tiagos manufactured since the month of August will receive a updated front door pad design. The armrest and grab handles receive a new and more premium design with changes made to the locking mechanism as well.

    Gone are the Maruti 800 style pop up door locks and that have made way to a conventional and more aesthetically pleasing design. The door lock lever is now integrated with the door handle, which itself is now sleeker and robust. The top spec XZ+ Variant is expected to receive a metal finish on the door handle with piano Black finish on the armrest.

    There is no price increase for this design change and the rest of the car and features remain the same.

    Tata Motors likes to stay in the news and they have always been quite successful at that. They have a habit of launching either subtle updates or special editions or even new variants of their cars almost every month. This time it’s a great news for Black lovers.

          Tata motors have filed trademark for #DARK and Camo editions of their budget range of cars, the Tiago, Tigor, Altroz and the Nexon. The #DARK edition is what we have seen on the Harrier already. The Harrier #Dark edition featured a new Atlas Black colour scheme with Glossy black finished alloy wheels. The

    interiors too were given an all-black treatment with faux metal glossy grey accents on the dashboard and doors. We can expect the same treatment to be given to the other cars as well.

           As a result of the success of this special edition, the manufacturer has decided to launch this edition on all of their cars including the Tiago, Tigor, Altroz and Nexon. This #Dark edition scheme however, just like on the Harrier, will be available only on the top spec XZ+ variants of the Tiago and Tigor. The Altroz will receive this paint scheme only on the XZ and Nexon #Dark will be available on the XZ+, XZ+(S) & XZ+(O) variants along with their AMT equipped versions.

           The other special paint scheme that is expected to launched is the CAMO edition. Though we are not sure about it’s details or colour scheme, it is safe to expect a white and black camouflage theme either only on the roof or the whole body.

            Apart from these already available Tata cars, Tata Motors will also be introducing these #Dark and Camo schemes on the upcoming flagship Gravitas SUV as well.

            These #Dark and Camo special colour scheme are expected to be priced around Rs 30,000 - 40,000 depending on the car model. Stay tuned for further details on these special editions from Tata Motors.

    The exterior sports a new, refreshed look. Compare it to the old versions of the car and you’ll see Hyundai has come a pretty long way with this one. A huge grille up front, sleek side profile, diamond cut alloy wheels, updated rear profile with LED tail lamps and updates to the tech have made this car a feature rich option for the masses that prefer an attractive sedan.

    Speaking of the interiors, the changes are subtle yet quite significant. Beige and Black interiors while all Black with red stitching for the Turbo variant make small changes look like they

    make a big difference. A new Infotainment System with Arkamys Premium Sound, rear USB charger, wireless phone charger, a new digital TFT cluster are some of the features that caught our eye. 


    Priced from Rs 9.3 lakh to Rs 15.09 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), Hyundai India has ensured the new Verna feels more value for money and with four variants,  Hyundai offers quite a few options- the S, S+, SX, and SX(O). Below is an in- detail break- up of them.

    Speaking of refreshed updates- Hyundai offers the new 2020 Verna with BlueLink connected car technology that keeps one connected with the car through a smartphone. While it continues to feature ventilated front seats and wireless charging. Hands-free boot opening, a sunroof, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), front parking sensors, safety features such as ABS with EBD, hill start assist, curtain air bags rear parking sensors, and speed alert warning are a part of the package spread across different variants.


    Cars like Skoda Rapid, Honda City, VW Vento, Toyota Yaris and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz do add to the competition for the Hyundai Verna Facelift 2020. Question is, will be successful in fighting them, or not?
