Pricing seems to confirm that they dont intend to top the sales chart and just want to settle at 3000-4000 monthly mark. But will it touch those levels?

Your sheet doesn't offer the complete picture. While the diesel Jazz & Elite i20 are close, the petrols are absolutely on par (because the Jazz' diesel premium is unusually higher). Except for the topmost variants, the pricing is just about on par with the Elite. The difference is negligible.

It's clear that Honda is taking a shot straight at Hyundai.

You should've included the petrols as their market share is greater than diesels.

It seems some people never learn !!

Honda aiming for repeat of the fiasco with this pricing strategy?
I was so hoping for right pricing strategy and put my money on this one. Have to look for Aspire launch now.

Hyundai and Maruti would be smiling in their offices with this.

Little disappointing to see this pricing. Based on what we have heard till now, does not seem right to have some much premium over diesel i20, as the i20 is far more refined.

But still have some hopes to see how loaded are the variants compared to i20 and a complete T-Bhp Review.

Thats already done by member 'damager21' here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post3748555 (The 2015 Honda Jazz (3rd-gen)) And yes, you have a point there.

Petrols dont go into my head anymore since my yearly usage is over 30k kms per year.

Weird pricing for the VX variant, why such a huge difference between the V and the VX, I always thought that the difference between the top two variants is negligible to get more customers to buy the top variant (since the top variant has the highest margins).

Apart from that I think the pricing for the other variants is expected and should lure a lot of people away from the petrol Elite I20 .

Waiting for the teambhp review now to decide whether to go for the I20 or the Jazz.

Has any car managed to make its competitors sell more cars after its price launch?

Looks like Jazz will achieve that feat again

The Diesel versions look to be overpriced by quite a bit. I don't see the reason as to why Jazz should be sold at a premium at all compared to the Elite i20, let alone 50K for the top end.

And as CrAzY dRiVeR has mentioned above, the top end diesel is too close to the Ertiga ZDi although it might cater to a different set of audience.

1L premium for CVT is disappointing especially when it is a 1.2 NA petrol and 1.3L for top end Diesel is; puzzling.

Mod Note: Our Honda Jazz Review has been taken live at this link (Honda Jazz : Official Review). Please continue the discussion over on the new thread. Thanks!

Dumb strategy by Honda.
- More than a Lac rupees difference between Petrol & Diesel variant.
- Lac rupees difference between MT & AT that too CVT.
- No AT in top-end variant.
- No AT in Diesel.
- Upcoming competition - Creta, Suzuki Fronx/YRA, S-Cross, Aspire and Mahindra S101.
- Existing competition - Zest, Elite i20, Amaze, Polo GT TSi/TDi.
