The new Honda Jazz facelift was launched in the second half of last month. The updated version of the company’s B2-segment hatchback has a starting price of Rs 7.35 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs 8.05 lakh for the diesel model. As with most mid-life facelifts, the new Jazz comes with a handful of styling changes and some new features. Recently, the company released a new TVC to highlight the new bits of this car. The marketing tagline for the new Honda Jazz is ‘Sexy in a new light”.
The advertisement shows a cat that seems to have taken a liking to the new Jazz. The video shows the cat in the comfortable confines of the refreshed car’s cabin. The video also highlights various features on offer, viz. LED tail lights, CVT automatic transmission, Touchscreen Digipad 2.0, et al. The background speak even says ‘Smoothness, it’s in our DNA. Be it the Honda C-V-T or the C-A-T.
