Honda Jazz BS6 Variant - 3 Things to Know
Released By : Ace Honda Noida
Honda Jazz is one of the most amazing automobiles available in India right now. It is a five-seater hatchback that is offered in six unique variants, including Jazz V, Jazz VX, Jazz V CVT, Jazz ZX, Jazz VX CVT and Jazz ZX CVT. Furthermore, Jazz ZX with its BS6 petrol engine is the most popular vehicle since it runs smoothly on every road from major highways to congested city traffic and other district roads.
Additionally, the new Jazz is also equipped with superb safety features, robust engines and unique features for a power-packed performance at the highest levels of comfort and safety. One such feature is the BS6 compliant engines which not only reduce emissions but also help protect the environment.
Want to know why BS6 compliance is critical in this day and age?
It's because we live in a world where our primary mode of transportation is a four-wheeler which could possibly lead to an increase in population levels when not maintained or serviced properly. The Bharat Stage 6 or BS6 norm is the sixth mandate for automotive emissions and it is a much welcomed change in the face of India's severe air pollution.
As a result, the Central Government of India has decided to strictly guide automakers in producing automobiles that meet the BS6 pollution standards. The main benefits of a BS6 engine include:
- Its ability to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) which are extremely harmful to human health and the environment.
- It also reduces the sulphur levels in the atmosphere and
- It also limits the carbon monoxide emissions from the tailpipe to 1.0g/km.
Jazz’s Petrol Engine
The all-powerful BS6 compliant petrol engine runs very smoothly on every terrain. It is a 1.2 litres i-VTEC petrol engine with the displacement of 1199 cc. It has a maximum power output of 90ps at 6000rpm and a maximum torque output of 110Nm at 4800rpm which makes for a powerful drive.
Also the engine comes with both manual transmission and continuously variable transmission and you have the option of choosing either based on your specific needs. There is also a slight variation in the fuel efficiency of the petrol engine based on the transmission you choose. The Jazz variant with the manual transmission provides a mileage of 16.6km/l whereas the variant with the Continuously variable transmission provides a mileage of 17.1km/l.
All of this is especially possible because of Honda’s exclusive i-VTEC technology. The Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC) system is designed to reduce fuel consumption in Honda automobiles. It uses two camshaft profiles and hydraulically alternates between the two so that the engine can have both low-speed and high-speed camshafts. It is an incredible feature which allows for better fuel efficiency without compromising on the engine power.
Jazz’s Driving Aids
In addition to the amazing engine and its many qualities, the new Honda Jazz comes equipped with numerous driving aids for an easy driving experience. Some of these driving aids include Tilt Steering, Cruise Control, Paddle Shift (CVT Only), Power Steering (EPS), Power Adjustable ORVM and Power Foldable ORVM etc. They ensure a worry-free driving experience.
For instance when you’re on the road for a long time having to keep your foot on the accelerator pedal might cause fatigue which leads to unsafe driving conditions. Cruise Control helps during such instances since it maintains the same speed without forcing the driver to keep their foot on the pedal. It is especially useful while driving on the highways. Another great feature is the Electronic power steering system which analyses steering torque and vehicle speed in order to modify the levels of steering assist like providing extra support for a light steering effort at low speeds.
