RAJESH KUMAR M's review on Honda Jazz SV Diesel
Year of Manufacture : 2016 | Driven no. of Kms. : 2000
- Pros: Superb mileage, best-in-class space/airy cabin, good looks/styling, practical, loaded with features.
- Cons: Though its a 1.5 litre diesel motor that delivers excellent mileage, it feels very under powered and lethargic. Being an ex-owner of Swift Dzire diesel car, the throttle response in Jazz diesel is totally disappointing for me. Its a linear engine that picks up very gradually. You may not get a quick acceleration evenif you press down the pedal or rev up hard and hence overtakings are to be made with good calculation only. Further, the spare wheel is 14 inch, while all other four wheels are 15 inch. I don't understand why Honda done it so.
I am really satisfied with the overall experience with 1 and half month of ownership of Honda Jazz SV diesel. While in highway it showed 29.3 kmpl mileage, which is remarkably good. Please note that during that trip I never crossed 80 km speed. Don't expect a peppy, punchy or sporty engine like the one in Swift Dzire diesel car. If you are looking for a practical, family, premium hatch back that returns good fuel efficiency, Honda Jazz diesel is the car you are looking for.
