Honda Jazz will have Made for India Engine

Honda Siel Cars India Ltd. will launch its latest model in India, the Jazz, with a 1.2 L i-VTEC engine which has been specially developed for the Indian Market. The 1.2L i-VTEC engine reflects the company's commitment towards India and its continued focus on bringing in the latest global technology into the country.


The new powertrain is a four - cylinder, 1198 cc engine featuring Programmed Fuel Injection delivering class - leading Power of 90 PS (66 kW) @ 6,200 rpm and Torque of 110 Nm (11.2 kg-m) @ 4800 rpm while giving impressive fuel economy of 16.1 km/l as per ARAI test data. In line with Honda’s mission to reduce its environmental footprint, the new engine is E10 compatible and has Euro IV emission levels.

The i-VTEC regulates the opening of air-fuel intake valves and exhaust valves in accordance with engine speeds. By regulating valve opening to match engine speed, the agile i-VTEC engine adjusts its characteristics to realize both superior power and low fuel consumption. With i-VTEC engine technology, Honda is working to ensure environmental responsibility while delivering driving pleasure.

The development work for this engine was done in Honda R&D centre in Tochigi Japan.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Jnaneswar Sen, Vice President - Marketing, Honda Siel Cars India Ltd. said “The “Made for India” Jazz engine will provide the perfect balance between good fuel economy and performance. While the engine was developed specially for the Indian market, it has been successfully launched in UK due to its excellent performance.”

This engine is also available on the foreign Jazz, they simply did not import it. That brings down the cost. This isn't an all-new engine. Buggers are lying
