If so, it would be quite stupid of Honda. People can pay a premium, but not that much.

I think Jazz is priced slightly cheaper to City in SEA markets. So here too they may follow the same strategy. My feel is that they may replace the NHC EXi/GXi/CVT with Jazz and VTEC with ANHC. That means pricing will be between 8 to 11 lacs across the models.

That's unrealistic. We know that there are strong speculations regarding the 1.3 i-vtec from Honda for the city as a high "fuel-efficiency" version which will replace the current GXI/EXI.

Furthermore, Honda is preparing a smaller i10/swift-size car for India - the Jazz would be the next logical step to that. So expect a 6-8 lacs pricing. That way Honda covers most of the segments:

4-6 new small car
6-8 Jazz
8-10 ANHC
10-13 Civic
16+ Accord, CRV etc

Hope Honda Does not do the same with the Jazz/ Fit. It is expected to be fitted with a 1.2 litre engine. But it has enormous space inside. So if it comes on road 6-6.5lacs it ll b worth it. We have to wait and see how Honda Prices
the Jazz as it should not enter the price segment of Base version Honda CIty.
I don't think Honda will ever make such a mistake coz if it does then the Hyndai i20 @ 5.6 Lacs will take away all the sales of this segment. We don't want to see Honda behind Hyndai.... Do we??

How many can comfortably sleep inside this Car. The photo shows only one pillow and blanket. How about space for the Girlfriend?

Does the rear seats fold 180 degrees backwards?

What do they want? Another Fusion or Fabia kind of Story?

But with the unconditional love for Honda in this country (has anybody ever researched why this country is possessed by Honda?) may see many a Jazz being bought at 10 L before it settled down at 5L.

I am peeved that Honda is making Indian currency look like the Yen of the nineties. 10L for a crappy, tin box of a car! I have written about my Jazz driving impressions elsewhere in this thread. It is just not worth your money. It is neither FEfficient.

In the UK, the Jazz is priced at approximately a 10% premium over the i20. If this is continued in India too, then we can expect the Jazz to start at about 5.20 and go all the way to 6.5 ex showroom. That would be between 6 and 7.5 on road. Will I pay that kind of money for a Jazz? Yes, considering that its just a City without a boot.

Default I got news!

Hi all

A friend of mine runs a market research agency. Yesterday he asked me if he could send someone to interview me for some survey as he was looking at Getz owners for some feedback.

Today spent over an HOUR with a guy giving feedback to various queries. He asked me tons of questions about hatches/market perception/buying process/features/brand etc etc

The entire interview was taped and the guy was very proffesional. In the end he showed me a picture and asked me to guess the price etc

I immediately recognised the Jazz and he later confirmed and showed me the specs!

1.2 l engine
ABS
dual airbags
magic seats (?)

were the only important ones ..rest was standard stuff. Finally he told me the price was 6.5 L!! (not sure abt on road etc), He was not sure about the launch date, though hinted at July-August 09
