The much awaited Jazz from Honda is scheduled to launch in the Indian market in June 2015. Unlike the last time, the car will be powered by locally manufactured 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. This would enable Honda to keep the prices competitive. The diesel engine would use a manual gearbox and the petrol engine is expected to come equipped with a manual as well as CVT automatic gearbox. The CVT gearbox would be the same as we have seen in Honda City.

The Honda Jazz will make use the belt and pulley CVT along with slender torque converter. This would make the CVT gearbox nicer to drive. Since the CVT gearbox also uses a high final drive ratio, it would also enable the car to offer good fuel economy. The torque converter employed, would keep sending the torque to the car at even at low revs, it makes the engine more responsive.

The car should truly deliver every promise this time and should fulfill the expectations of company and customers alike. Since it would be priced cheaper this time, the competition does have a reason to worry.
