While the former can make 102 PS of max power and 123 Nm of peak torque, the latter churns out 132 PS of power and 155 Nm of peak torque.
The fourth-generation Honda Jazz is likely to hit the Indian market in the second half of 2020.
Allegedly, the India-spec Honda Jazz might get the 1.5-lite petrol engine as the global-spec model along with a 1.5-litre diesel unit. The 1.3-litre mill is not likely to be offered as an option.
Earlier this month, it was rumoured that the new-gen Jazz will not make it to India due to the presence of electric parking brake and its low sales number in recent months. However, for the Japanese company, the Jazz is an important product for our market. Upon its launch in India, the 2020 Honda Jazz will rival models like the Maruti Baleno, Volkswagen Polo and Hyundai i20.
