Default re: Honda slashes price on Jazz as well ? EDIT: Launch pics of new Jazz Pg.56

I meant to write this last night but was too tired. Like I mentioned a few pages ago, I had rung up Peninsular Honda the day before afternoon to confirm the news and get pricing details. The salesgirl said they were yet to get the exact price/discount - and were likely to get it the next day. Subsequently I spoke to a colleague of mine who was in the market for changing his second car – a 9 year old Santro. He had almost decided to buy the Liva (top end) like the other colleague who had bought one for his wife – one of the first Livas to be delivered in Cochin. Since this colleague and I are Honda users (he has a Civic & I have my City), I managed to persuade his to look seriously at the Jazz now that pricing was very attractive. Imagine my shock when I rang up Peninsular Honda last afternoon to get the pricing, when I was told that everything was sold out the previous day!! They said they were out of stock. I am really taken aback by the shenanigans going on thanks to Honda’s murky silence on the matter. I feel the news is not really out in a small city like Cochin and that the dealer is up to a bit of black marketing – they would probably pocketing a sizable chunk of the discount and sweet talking the unwary in this town into deals. Since I had mentioned about the 1.75 lac discount straight to them, they were probably not keen on dealing with me.
Later on I contacted Cosmic Honda and they are sending someone to meet us this afternoon. My colleague intends to test drive and then take a decision. I’ll update you all on this.

Absolutely! The best response on this thread - 5*!!!

Lets put an end on this discussion.. Those getting the Jazz at reduced prices, Congratulations! Your karma is good!!

Look forward to the new feature-rich Jazz with clearance prices
+1 to the responses. As Sid mentioned elsewhere, I guess a new Jazz with some updated features with more meaningful variants will come.
Even I tried to buy but due to logistical issues at my end, I dropped the effort y'day - even though the dealer had committed a Ralleye Red Select but decided to forego and buy a car sometime in the 1st week of Sept. In the meantime, to all the new owners of Jazz we can expect more of Test Drives reviews !!

I share your thoughts, I & my wife truly liked this vehicle in all aspects expect the engine, I lost my sleep hearing the 1.75 lakhs discount. Even if the facelift is 50-70k more than the current discount prices, it would make a lot more sense IMO. Just look at the Jazz introduced in Malaysia.

One has to book it immediately. He also said that all the cars with the hefty Company discounts are gone.

Now in the light of the whole discussion above, I cannot make any sense out of this quote. Anybody any clue?
Discounts have been given to clear the inventory to make way for new facelift Jazz which would be launched at the end of this month..

I believe Honda would have done it quite long back for Jazz, may be they have realised it late but not too late. Honda group has done like similar to what people do invest in a high initial value of IPO in the market, watching and waiting to resell it if the price goes up. But the new entrants like i20, Ritz, VW Polo have eaten their market from all dimensions. Honda's quarterly statistics might have made them to realize the reality of Indian market and competetion for these quarters.

When I visited other car showrooms, they used this point as an added advantage to push their cars against Honda Jazz. But it is not so. Honda cars do deserve a lot and is far ahead of these generations.

No doubt Jazz is a very refined and premium product from Honda, now it the time to watch how Honda car sales will move in the market. Overall a very good move by Honda.

Had a test drive today morning, Magnum Honda Bangalore came home with the test car. All cars with the dealer discount are sold out. I have to wait till end of August if I have to take delivery of Jazz which will be the upgraded one. No pricing details and upgrade details are available as of now.

Just thought of sharing with BHPians.

Is this just what it is?? Just a facelift - la Maruti, isnt it? I read on this thread that it will have a Civic-inspired front!!!

Anyways, more than the looks or the price, the 1.5L engine in this would be the real deal! Dont disappoint, Honda!!

Yes, it is indeed a minor facelift. And do not expect the 1.5L engine, you will be disappointed.

The more important thing for Honda is to reorganize the variants and price them appropriately. That is what they will be focussing on rather than a bigger engine.
They might throw in a few more features in the top end variant, while the lowest variant will have less features for sure.

I expect the lowest variant to be priced below 6 L ex-showroom

Seeing the sales with the discount..I am sure Honda would maintain the discounted price with new face-lifted Jazz, unless and otherwise there is a engine change.

They must be sure, if the old price is prevailing, the sales would be sloppy as before.

Just my instinct

Moving on to brighter side. Yesterday I saw 2 new Honda Jazz near ITPL in Bangalore, with ribbon on. Well, i might have paid 60K more :( than the two fellows, but when I sit in my car and drive, I never think about the price. The things which come up in my mind are:
1. Ohh, it so silent.
2. Steering is so good.
3. It gives me around 16.5 /L in Bangalore ( well i am going by what machine says to me, I have never tested it myself ).
4. Its so spacious and bright. It looks handsome.
5. I am not going to sell it for next 6-7 years ( hopefully, but i have a fickle mind ).
6. My god, there is a bump, slow down. Why on earth such a nice car has such a low GC etc etc.
Believe me, I never though about the extra Premium while driving it. Its a gem of a car. And for stock clearing discounts, everybody does it. Why to blame Honda.

Disclaimer - I am not a Honda fan boy, loyalist etc. Jazz is my first Honda car, which I bought last year. I know it was costly, but once i drove it, i never liked any other hatch. I went with my heart and not head. And I was not much at fault ( except if i would have bought it today(after 1 year ), it might have costed me 60k Less ).
"Get Over it".

Thanks for the link.

Honda slashes price on Jazz as well ? EDIT: Launch pics of new Jazz Pg.56-new-jazz.jpg

If this is the upcoming face-lift along with 1.5 auto, then it will be a drool worthy altogether. Price can be somewhat more than current Select Model (without discount).

Cheers!

Why do people keep posting about the new engine of Jazz when it has been clarified that it will not be coming anytime in the near future? Please stop with the speculation.

I got a quote of 6.4 Lakhs OTR from one dealer and 6.6 Lakhs OTR from another dealer at Hyderabad for the Jazz Select Edition. What do you guys say? 6.4L OTR for Jazz Select sounds mouth-watering to me :O.

They may launch new Jazz with curvier mud flap, Better parcel tray, and thicker wheel cap. New Jazz inspired by upcoming Civic? that is one ugly design isn't it.

If you can get hold of Jazz @ discounted price it is an awesome deal. According to me it is the best petrol hatch available in the country now.
