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

Honda will launch the facelifted Jazz in August, 2011.

The Japanese automaker recently offered massive discounts on the Jazz, which was to clear inventory and to make way for the new version. The new Jazz will feature changes to both the interiors and exteriors but very subtle ones.

The exterior of the 2012 Honda Jazz now features revised bumpers, headlights, grille and tail lights. The interiors see a change of dashboard colours along with the addition of chrome rings on AC vents. The suspension has been tweaked for better ride and handling, while the 1.2-liter i-VTEC motor is now revised to offer better fuel economy.

The new Honda Jazz will also get a CVT gearbox in the top variant. The AT unit will help Honda lure buyers who are looking at an easy to drive urban runabout.

The Japanese automaker will most likely hike the prices of the new Jazz but will still keep them in-line with the price cut they made recently. So with the new Jazz, we can expect a new pricing for the premium hatchback as well.

This new pricing should start at Rs. 5.99 lakhs for the base Jazz variant.

My advice - Don't rush for the bookings just yet, unless and until you need a car really, really bad. Wait a little longer. The August launch is imminent. As the saying goes, "Good things come to those who wait."

@RavenAvi - That link you posted does not open.
The news about the CVT version makes my mouth water in anticipation. Let's hope it turns out true.

Thats interesting Raven - the CVT is sure to generate a lot of interest and if offered at a reasonable price (which hopefully Honda has learnt with the earlier pricing fiasco) will have quite a few takers.

Motorbeam site is down, wilful (updating probably). Try again after some time.

If Honda is bringing in the CVT, rest assured that we will have 3 variants of the Jazz facelift - Base, Select and AT (which will take over from the Jazz X).

Pricing should be as per my predictions earlier in this thread - 5.99L, 6.59L and 6.99L.

Indeed, Uday. Anything more than 7L should be criminal by Honda, now that they have wetted the appetite of potential Jazz lovers with the "Cash Discount" revisions.

i doubt they will offer the AT version at only a 40k premium over the mid variant. Since customer for the AT version will be few, i am guessing honda will milk them for the maximum and not care for volumes there.

if it is indeed launched at 6.99 ~ 7.8 OTR mumbai, i will seriously consider it over the manual.

When RavenAvi mentioned about CVT, I googled and found some interesting links about Honda and iVtec. The site from Honda gives a fundoo view of what is CVT. Not sure whether this is right place to post this.

@ Mods: If this is not the right place, could you please post it to the right thread?

Slightly OT: As per reports, early 2012. Most probably it will be unveiled at the 2012 Auto Expo at New Delhi in January.

this one month wait is proving to be too hard coupled with the anxiety over the price. Every time a see a Jazz on road i sigh..
Chennai has 3 dealers and all 3 have started the bookings for the new face lifted Jazz. Booking amount is 25K.

@RavenAvi
Seems the new Jazz would be mouthwatering and if the price are going to be according to your predictions, I am sure, new Swift launch would be a dampener. No offense meant people.

Waiting for tomorrow, to book my Jazz.

Seriously, if the pricing is going to be beyond 7L, I am sure, I am gonna get my 25K back.

I think some dealers are trying to cash in on the current scenario and they don't want to let the interest on jazz die down.

In addition i think they don't really mind if some one cancels the order after new price structure is revealed,Because by the time you cancel,they might be already sitting on top of the interest earned by the 25k paid by you.

Thanks Raven for the information. If you don't mind can you please share the source from where you read it. Been eagerly awaiting some authenticate news on this amidst the rumors going around.

Features and look will be same as the new Jazz launched in Malaysia.

Quite contrary, honda had asked ASM to contact customers who had enquired about Jazz and ask them to wait for a bit and enroll them in the same discounted price tag for the face-lifted Jazz.

Palms itching!!!

If it just going to be a 25K-50K increase on the discounted price for the new
Jazz , this surely sucks even more for those who have bought the car before the discounted price, not only does the resale value goes down but they'd also feel cursing their luck.

Though it has been tagged as concept, but LED taillights seem to be the same what mentioned in the article.
