This has put my new car decision in Jeopardy and confusion. I was about to book Swift ZDI but my all time favorite car Jazz is much more improved and affordable.

This seems to be the fastest moving thread on the Forum today! Everyone's excited and happy that the best hatch in India just got affordable and can finally boast of the VFM tag that it sorely lacked.

However, I hope Honda is watching this thread closely.

The Jazz is still an incomplete car. It requires two essential elements:

- An Automatic Transmission.

- Automatic Climate Control. C'mon Honda, if Hyundai and Maruti can give it on the i10 and the Swift respectively, then what's stopping you'll?

Fantastic pricing. Nice to see honda moving aggresively and directly taking care of the only drawback the Jazz had till date: the pricing.
I hope current Jazz owners are not disheartened by the news. The product staying in the market is more important than anything else, me thinks. Well, at least that's the logic I used to console myself for the ANHC price cut

Wow, I seriously did not expect Honda to do this. RIP i20
I have always liked the way Jazz looked right from the time i saw it in sg. I was so excited when it was launched here. But as everyone else was, i was disappointed with the pricing.We have a serious, real and affordable premium hatch now..

Ooh, this is so tempting!

The only thing stopping me is the choice of a Ritz VDI(ABS) (with aftermarket alloys, tyre upgrades and music system) and a Pete's Box.

The on-road price will be approximately the same as the Jazz select (~Rs.6.5l), but I will get Diesel F.E. as well. The car will mostly be used in the city with maybe two long trips in a year.

What does the forum think?

@Anoop.mathew When it comes to choices, there is no hard and fast rule. I do not have running which warrants a diesel car, but still I got Grande Punto MJD because I love the way the car drives and I love diesels. But if Jazz was offered at this price when I brought my Punto, I would have been seriously tempted to buy it - I know there is no rational explanation, but that is the way mind works.

If I were you, I will get Jazz Select instead of Ritz VDi

You can't even begin to compare the two.

Test drive the Jazz and you'll realize why it's way ahead of the pack. The sheer space it has on the inside, that smooth, very refined 1.2 engine and now, the mouth-watering price.

If you do over 10,000 km a year, then look for a diesel car. (You have a few options like the new Swift, the Ritz, the i20, the Punto, etc.) If not, shut your eyes and buy the Jazz.

Here is the brochure from Honda website.

Overall the pricing looks very good with the slighly upgraded / enhanced features. Agreed with Suhas when he says that the car is incomplete without ACC. An Auto transmission would have been great. But this re-launch would see many more Jazz's on the road and and the existing Jazz owners need not have to worry about Jazz being phased out (which was the case sometime back).

I did visit Hallmark Honda in Navi Mumbai and the car was being prepared for display that was the reason i was not allowed to take pictures of the car.

Peronally i did not like the new Beige interiors in the new Jazz Or may be i am to used to the old interiors.

My brother and myself have been looking out for second hand Jazz in Bangalore and the prices are something like Rs. 5.5 lacs to Rs. 6.5 lacs for 1 to 2 year old car.

What are the chances of us getting beaten up if we approach the sellers with the new Jazz price list and ask them to reduce their prices?

Very likely.
Better wear the black helmet "Hera Pheri" style and then approach.

I am really feeling bad about the existing owners. They will never forgive Honda.

But I am curious. I agree that Honda was making insane profits on whatever little Jazz they sold. But still there has to be some cost cutting somewhere for this new price. Where exactly? Waiting for some updations on the official review thread of Jazz.

Any suggestion on an equipment level between the Polo1.6 and Jazz X variant?

Have to decide between the two, welcome any thoughts on the same.

Cheers!

TDed both cars.

The Polo 1.6 has a more powerful engine going for it.
The Jazz is more spacious ( the rear tunnel is not as pronounced as the Polo , so better seating), and has steering mounted controls. I also do not remember USB on the Polo when I TDed it.

The cabin "felt" more premium in the Jazz, ( personal opinion ).

^^ Cant compare as Jazz with current price is excellent. I would advice you to go for Jazz. There is no other Car in India which can provide practicality and space like Jazz and you wont be disappointed. Jazz offers more mileage even though it may not be your concern it will help you. Jazz Owners "Adimicra and others" are having hassle free ownership and hence my vote is for Jazz.
