Fantastic driving dynamics and a feature-loaded cabin make the Jazz one of the most exciting premium hatchbacks
The slowdown in the automobile industry has caused a lot of hue and cry but let’s take a minute to calm down and think rationally. The number of cars which have come on the road this decade is so staggering, that I truly wonder where can you even drive? The growth in car sales and infrastructure improvement is so distant that I was glad I could leave my daily driver Skoda Superb for a compact car like the Honda Jazz!
While globally the new model has just been unveiled, the one sold in India is still one of the best in the segment, if not the best and I can say that after having driven it for a couple of months through the pothole soaked, narrow roads of Mumbai (narrow because half of Mumbai is dug because of metro work). The best thing I liked about the Jazz is the boot space, it’s still small when I factor in me having half my house in the trunk but it’s the biggest in the segment and that really helps.
