Just now received a SMS from Sundaram Honda for an "xclusive preview" of the Honda Jazz. Official launch is on 9th June according to the SMS. Did any other T-BHPian from CHE , get an invite ?

I was recently at the Honda dealer picking the delivery of my ANHC and the dealer said that Honda is planning to discontinue ANHC E Model (the base model) to make better positioning for Jazz..not sure if it's really true or not (the Honda website still reflects E model).

I agree with this one , it is not that i am a honda fan or fiat fan. But seeing how ANHC not being a VFM easily outsells the linea which is true VFM. Jazz may be less of features , but what features it offers , it offers with qulaity as the other guy told in the mini-reveiw. No one is still sure of the pricing .

As someone posted a common man told to bhpian that "linea is much better car & VFM than ANHC , but i will still go for ANHC becuase 'somehow fiat does not induce confidence into me"

I had a sneak preview of the Jazz today at one of the Honda dealers here in Chennai and i just love the car!. Even at a rather steep price close to 7lacs, i say it is still worth it. The seating, ergonomics and functionality are all Honda perfect. The possibilities for pimping the ride are also endless and this car will appeal to all age groups.I also had a look at the 1200cc i-vtec engine and felt good about it and i'm sure the drive won't disappoint. I was allowed to take pics on the condition i post them after the Delhi release.

more or less it looks similar to Palio weekend from behind.

boot space will not be a limitation for sure
I see Japanese version of JAZZ called FIT daily in large number. Apparently i see FIT in large number compared any other car at Tokyo.
car looks quite good but if launched at 7L, its tad expensive. But if priced 6 to 6.5L on road, will be a good i20, Punto competitor

Just found in wikipedia that Jazz is top selling car in Japan

I think we'll continue to have such views about any new car launch over the next decade. This can change only when someone (Toyota?) gives Honda some stiff competition.

i feel if the 7L ex-showroom in Delhi is true, then Grande Punto will outsell Jazz. Simply because GP will have a range of models (4 petrol + 4 diesel) and the cheapest being at least 3 L OTR cheaper than Jazz, or almost half that of Jazz.

This thread is becoming hillarious. Its almost like a bidding contest.... Every Bhpian comes and predicts the price from unknown sources and than we bash Honda. We have figures from 8.5,7.5,7.25,7.0,6.75,6.5....
So I have decided I might as well throw a figure in the ring..... 6.25 ex showroom that I came to know from *hidden sources*

6.25? Wow. Really? That's 6.7 OTR! naah, still to expensive! How about 6.12? Got to know from a *hidden* source too.

Honda really broke our "dreams" - it truly is ironic

I have also stopped reading the auto mags, they are biased to the core. I think they might get paid for giving 5 stars. T-BHP is the place to hang out, it rocks.

Jazz would get beaten up if its cost on road price goes above 7 lakhs or so.
