Coming, as speculated in all other posts, by mid August. I think the changes are really for the good. No info on the prices, though. Let us wait and watch.
Edit and Update: Today during the course of a conversation with my source, I came to know that the models are: S MT, Select, X MT. The X MT will have the fully retractable ORVMs. Essentially 3 models. I think the other day, there was some confusion either in what he said or my understanding. Again, no authentic information or update on prices and so no comment on that point.

@aaren
This means S MT would be the base model and X MT the high end? I am curious how would Honda differentiate the features between these variants.

^ It is all speculation as of now - but differentiation could be just like between Select, Mode, Active and X. When the prices aren't poles apart, differentiation could also be pretty subtle.

If a model is named X MT, hopefully an X AT is on the cards as well. May follow the launch sometime later, if not now.

Seriously, only 2 options below 6 lacs, if you want an automatic?
(hopefully) Jazz & Brio AT to double the choices available to us today.

Guys..Honda has unveiled a scoop picture of the front grille in the facebook page and also informed its from their new car. Any guesses whether its from Jazz or Brio.

Honda, Maruti Suzuki & Toyota start a price war after dip in July sales - The Economic Times

Another news of lower price for Jazz. If it is around 6L then it will give tough competition to all and may be finally Honda is giving their product at right price.

Sure looks like the Jazz. The ridge on the bonet is not present in the brio. Its exactly the same grill as on the jazz hybrid.

Although when i spoke to my dealer he didnt mention anything about chrome on the front grill. He did mention about a chrome stripe on the tail gate.

I hope the chrome grill is not a standard feature on all models. i am not quiet a fan of the same. Lets hope its an option like the 'x' grill or the one offered on the city

Post my conversation with the dealer today it is confirmed that the 'premium grill' pic uploaded on the honda FB page in indeed Jazz.

Apparently, the chrome grill and beige interiors will be part of the two higher models only.

Honda facebook page is the real happening place now. They are teasing us like MSIL did for Swift.

The headlights are now revealed.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...&type=1&ref=nf

Colored Headlights to make the looks as good as the drive! Which Honda car are we talking about?

Any idea what do they mean when they say 'colored' headlights. are they talking about the black highlight at the edges?

Also is the colour on the pics (the grill and the lights) the new urban titanium or some other new colour they are launching. looks more greyish to me.

Have to follow their FB page now.. or rather keep following T-BHP

I can see only 3 colors on the headlight. Silver, Black and Orange. Not sure what Honda means by colored.

I do not think its the urban titanium for the body, its kind of a grey/silver. Same color of which the front grille was posted yesterday.

Seeing the scoops from Honda, believe we are nearing the launch. WooHoo!!!

I hope the new Jazz will have the issue with petrol lid fixed.
