All prices ex-showroom, in CG. No official announcement has been done by Honda regarding this price cut as of yet.

The Select's price comes to 6.7L OTR, and it's a steal now!
Wow!!! Am I dreaming? Was there a Management Reshuffle at Honda India? First the City and now the Jazz. This is truly amazing stuff by Honda. I'm wondering how would people who bought the Jazz yesterday at ridiculous high prices react to this news?

Boy, I am hugely disappointed. I extended so much myself to buy this car from a range of 6 to 7.5 just because I loved this car. Its less than an year and I get to hear this. I haven't even done 2 lakhs of payment on my loan. I am sure every Jazz owner story is like mine. I have started to hate Honda. I know its knee-jerk reaction. But I am sure in my shoes every owner would feel the same. The only consoling factor is that I lose around 75K and not 1.75 L.

Or this 1.75L is the discount on OTR ? Since its such a massive price cut, I see another 10-15K savings on OTR prices since insurance & RT also will be reduced along with this. In Kerala, this Ex showroom price reduction will bring in another savings of 9000/- on RT alone [6%]. Bangy guys will be saving another 10000/- on top of this taking the savings on RT alone to almost 20K. Insurance savings are apart from this.

Anyway I guess this blew off almost everyone in the forum as we all were expecting just a lac discount. This is way too aggressive by Honda. They also might have done this to create space for some other products / variants of Jazz. If the management can go to such an extent of price cut, they might have more arrows in the quiver.

Maurti & Hyundai has been beaten from top [Honda] & bottom [Toyota]. Will be interestting to see how they respond to this game. This festival seasons has brought a lot of joy to the customers [well, most of them] I guess.

Thats right! And more cars on road means, happy dealers (more cars to services), parts suppliers (new cars + aging part replacements) & all other supporting functions. Overall it will be a healthy situation to be in for a long run!

Honda is rumoured to be building 2 small diesels in the 1.4 and 1.6 range. The mention in Autocar show this week was that they have put their out of work Formula 1 engine team into developing this engine :-)

cant say how much is true

Thank You VW for giving us Vento.

And on related note thank you Honda too. Hyundai needed a big stick up theirs big time.
Hilarious post.
You are absolutely right. VW might not be perfect but I will somehow always credit them for there game changing role in the Indian car market. Some people say its the hyundai which will dent the Honda but Verna existed even before when honda was the undisputed king. VW came and gave us the confidence that we can get a much more VFM car for the price we are paying. 3 cheers for them!

Someone pinch me hard

This is excellent news, especially when I am in the market to buy a hatch. Finally Honda have woekn up or they have fired their management team and hired a new bunch, which ever it is they have it spot on with the Jazz pricing. Now I just hope the Civics also follow soon.

I am going to the next door Honda dealer right away, by the way I checked gtheir website right now and the Delhi price for the Jazz are still as mentioned below:

Jazz: 712,500
Jazz Select: 723,900
Jazz X: 755,900

So what is the new price in Delhi, does anyone have an idea on this, it will really help, lest I make a fool of myself in the showroom

I don't see Jazz catching up now. Also to add, Jazz lacks the oomph i20 and Polo have. The 90 bhp motor seriously lacks torque. Also, WagonR's rear seats were better utilized by us than the Jazz Magic seats.

It is a nice car though but I don't see sales catching up now (read 3K or above units).

Well, Not always true. Honda gave almost 40% discounts for stock clearance on Honda Civic Hybrid which was priced at around 22 Lacs and failed big time. They offered Civic Hybrids for around 14 lacs during stock clearance. This was couple of years back.

Jazz was always overpriced and the price correction is defiantly going to help sales chart.

They are going to get at least 1 reply from me there and it ain't gonna look good

I bought a preowned jazz a couple of months ago, and surely paid the premium there. The guy who sold it must be laughing this morning

The most embarrassing part this morning will be to inform the wife, who had asked me to hold off on the purchase till September! I hope Honda makes it up to existing owners in some way. The phone will be ringing off the hook at their dealers later today. Prospective buyers and irate existing customers

Back to the same question, which I think was discussed on the Jazz 1.5 thread.
But I dont remember the conclusion.

Is there any differentiation planned by Honda between the engine capacities of Brio and Jazz?

This is definately going to create a lot of confusion in a potential buyers mind . The all new swift due in a few months . Honda Jazz , people have had desires for this car but have ignored it just for the price . I dont think a lot of people have slashed it of their potential list for its engine power or features , its always been the price point that has been a turn down when it came to Honda . Honda just hit the nail on the head with this price cut and they've (Hit) hyundai , right where it matters . I'd like to see the i20 numbers now . I hope the dying FIAT takes a few cues (yes am a FIAT fan boy. )I hope FIAT comes up with its EVO and prices it right .

Maruti now need to up their game and really need to think out of the box to price the swift right . They have taken away a share of the pie of the new swift even before it launched .

I am tempted to sell off my Punto and get the Jazz but I'll probably wait till the game gets yummier .

I was just wondering , what would happen to people who bought the Jazz a few days ago , would they be eligible for teh revised prices or would they be paying the same old price ?

6 pages of discussion in less than 12 hours! Reinforce the fact that the way forward for Honda is not adding additional features, better drivetrain, or diesel engine. Itís all about price cut.

Now, this could be a marketing ploy as well. Honda maybe leaving space for a facelift. At this point, any price hike in Jazz (even with a 1.5L engine will be a disaster). Reduce 100K now, and bring in a face lifted version a few months later with a price hike of around 75K. End result Ė Honda is happy for regaining the public confidence and public is happy for buying a Honda with no additional cost.

But Honda has done their reputation no good IMO.
I guess you always take a risk when you buy a low-selling model in the market.
Look at Fabia - Skoda reduced the prices no doubt, but they cut the features as well. SO, at least, the previous owners can feel somewhat satisfied considering they have some extra features at a higher price.
Look at Honda, they just reduce 1.75L without any cut in the features - that is a whooping 20% + reduction in the price.
My next car won't be a Honda for sure.

Agreed that itís a huge price cut, but itís not all bad for you.
I feel those who buy the existing lot with the revised price are lucky ones. Expect some dip in features and build quality in the new cheaper Jazz. Who knows, that Euro-like thud while closing the door maybe missing in the new lot (not that many of the buyers will care for it).
