Japanese auto giant Honda's 2014 Jazz has been spotted in India. The car which made its first appearance at the Delhi Auto Expo is expected to make its entry into the domestic market in early 2015.

The new spy shots of an un-camouflaged 2014 Jazz emerged on the web shows it in sliver paint and did not have any badges, whether its diesel or petrol. Thanks to the folks at CarSizzlers for bringing the new set of images of Honda Jazz.

Flaunting stylish design and contemporary look, the new Jazz is certainly a much desired and awaited car in the Indian market. The new Jazz has been earning tremendous response in Japan, where it is on sale already.

The India-bound version of the latest Jazz is expected to come in both petrol and diesel engine variants. The petrol version of the Jazz is speculated to pack the same 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine that powers Amaze and Brio. It can generate a power of 87bhp, with a torque of 110Nm at 4800rpm. The diesel Jazz is likely to pack a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel motor, which can pump 100PS of power and 200Nm torque.

The car will come loaded with features like power steering with mounted audio controls, front and rear power windows, electrically adjustable rear view mirrors, climate control unit and more. The exciting factor of the 2014 Honda Jazz is the addition of diesel engine.

In the third quarter of 2014, Honda is expected to debut its Mobilio MPV which will be offered in both petrol and diesel engines in India. While the petrol model of the car will pack 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol motor, which can churn out a power of 117bhp, the diesel variant will come with 98bhp, 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel unit. The car will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Chevrolet Enjoy and Nissan Evalia in the domestic market.
