Honda India will launch the Jazz on the 9th of June this year. The engine of the Honda Jazz is a “Made for India” 1.2 litre i-VTEC powerplant which is Euro IV ready. Honda claims a mileage of 16.1kmpl and the engine will be compatible with up to 10% ethanol in its mixture of petrol. The i-VTEC engine uses Honda’s variable valve timing system that regulates the opening and closing of air-fuel intake and exhaust valves
to match the engine speed.

Honda will launch the Jazz in only one variant, the Jazz S. Honda might launch a more feature rich variant later and call it the Jazz V. Honda is also expected to release a variant of the Jazz with the City’s 1.5 litre powerplant in the future. . However, Honda will not launch the Jazz with a diesel powerplant, atleast not in the near future.
