If you want to go for exchange, you will get upto 10K exchange discount.

I think there's an additional cash discount of 20K but that's for the petrol version. Not sure though.

Try to get 10K worth accessories if you can haggle hard. Best of luck!

Thanks for the info. I guess I will check it out next weekend and see what the dealer says. I am hoping for something decent on the petrol.

Cheers

Does this mean that the additional stuff (such as the dark-grey (gunmetal?) alloys, USB extension, etc.) given for the X will be available for the Select variant through a separate kit?
Or will the Jazz Select model come with these fittings as OEM in the future?

The ASM has no idea. Maybe things will get clearer once he calls me back in the evening.

Please see if you can get more info on this, mdsaab.
This does require some more clarity from Honda. The Pune Honda SA just called me up and the discount on Jazz Select version is now a whopping 1.5 Lacs!!

This indicates they are clearing the inventories. Are they phasing out the Jazz completely????

Awesome will have to go back to the dealership this week and check it out..
Only such a huge discount means that the car is getting discontinued. So should anybody buy it or not?

Now if they do the same thing again for the City.

Cheers

that is really a H U G E discount, almost unbelievable.
Poor souls like me feel like

This means either of 2 things -
Car is being totally phased out. In that case, all owners will be worried about spare parts availability, resale etc etc
OR, a facelift like a Fabia with cutting down on the features and introduction of low-end varsions without any features.

Let use see. Sid, please provide some update

Don't worry about "what-if". If you like the car and the deal suits you, get the car.

Agree something "could" be brewing that has prompted such a price-cut but no point speculating endlessly.

Buying a car that "may" be discontinued is not a problem either; the company ensures that spares are available easily for 10 years.

Just now spoke to the Honda dealer, the news is true.

Jazz Select price has been dropped from 8.7 Lakhs to 7Lakhs OTR.

That is a 1.7 Lakhs discount.

Now, it is priced lower than the Polo highline.
The Sales person was pretty confident that the car will not be discontinued but he is unable to give a good explanation for the price cut.

Only one doubt - why is Honda not officially disclosing the price cut like City?
time for some more

I guess the Jazz will finally be priced sensibly but I also see a feature cut to go along with it. I dont think existing Jazz owners should worry about the car being phased out. Its a very good car and a very new car. So I am sure it is going to see some major price cuts ala the City.

Is the Honda City price cut + 75k discount confirmed?

Given such drastic price cuts on the Jazz, would it not be entering Brio territory? Any idea about it's launch and prices?

No cut on features.
Jazz Base version dropped from 8.63 to 6.75L OTR
Jazz Select version dropped from 8.73L to 6.9L OTR.

Thats a whooping 2L discount on the OTR price.
Time for some more

Interesting news indeed. It doesnít make sense selling the Jazz at 8.7 OTR which is very close to the newly announced City prices. They should make it official. Fail to understand what they are waiting for.

Hold off on your headbanging - Honda Cars might be doing what Honda Motorcycles India is doing; same model but obvious (and very glaring) cost cutting and quality compromises!

Honestly, that is a big goof up. If they are not making any downgrades in the car, and going to sell the existing Jazz as it is, at price lower by as much as 2L, its a big mistake.

1. They are practically accepting they were simply cheating all these years when selling the car at such a high price.

2. This is definitely turn off the existing customers, who showed their trust in Honda a lot earlier than the upcoming customers and spent their hard earned money for the Jazz at its older price. This is cheating existing customers also. Ruthless business...

3. I suppose (or do I also HOPE?) this will cause quite a dent in Honda's image. Evidently they are feeling the crunch of the petrol prices and have witnessed a terrible slump in demand. Hence the damage control with price cutting. Now even with the lower price, HSCI, dealers, channels, everyone will still make loads of profit. So? Earlier the cream was even thicker at the expense of the Indian buyer.

It will of course boost sales of Honda cars for sure. Who would not want to buy a Jazz / City cheaper than it was? But then it is still an ethical mistake.

I don't think too many of Honda customers were those who'd think "God, INR 5.00 per kilometer is costly for me". It was generally the elite who bought the Honda. They should have stuck with that and cars would have sold like they did all these years. You were on the wrong way Honda for some years, now looks like you are taking a worse turn...
