yeah CS, the rear seats are split ones with 60:40 along with single tumble and new thing is that it can be flip folded which provides space on rear bench, this is new innovation from honda and gives huge luggage space inside the cabin.

Yeah, certainly seems like a big car with a 1.2L engine! and a relatively small boot for a big car.

Surprisingly, Honda this time is not consistent with its offering of Audio System in ANHC & in Jazz.

While in a 9-10 Lacs ANHC it did not give a proper CD player & gave only USB port, in Jazz, what bhpian mentioned above, its giving only the CD Player & not USB port.

For ANHC, the argument was USB is futuristic, who uses CD Player nowadays? Its as if You copy songs from CD / DVD to USB pen drive & use it, & feel more tech-savvy. For Jazz, what now?

Why can't Honda give both - CD Player & USB Port since its already charging a bomb?

Bombs come cheaper than a HONDA

Things that Honda is NOT providing to keep the ownership costs low!
  1. No Fog lamps - Hey, now no pebbles on the road will break the fogs. You save money here
  2. No Alloys - Replacing a wheel cap is better than replacing an alloy. Hence, as a special exemption passed by their board, only Wheel Caps. If you want the ownership cost to be high, purchase alloys from Honda dealer at 50K else your warranty is void if you buy it from outside!
  3. No USB in the music system - Remember you paid 20K for that lovely Ipod? We want you to use it. Indians are downloading songs from the net and the music piracy is high. We are giving only CD/MP3 player to support the music industry
In all a good car. Only if it was priced sensibly!

As I see during the course of this thread, the negative vibes about the car has suddenly changed into positives. Guess the car is much bigger and more comfortable and has more quality than what was initially believed. Guess Honda plonked the 1.2 engine only for excise benefits, and 1.5 would have taken the car to the City price territory. A 1.2 at 6 ex showroom and 1.5 at 7.5 ex showroom would have been killer! Fabia and i20 would have been wiped out..

@ 6.5 ex-showrrom , what should it be OTR delhi , My guess is if it is still around 7.1 or 7.2 OTR delhi there will good number of customers for Jazz .
After all the common man decides on the first look , i dont think most of them who buy a honda will know what is bhp , torque or weight ratio blah blah bah .
They will take test ride then - conforatbale ride , ok power good quality interiors. add to that resale value and brand image honda as put up india .
Sir no fog lamps , No alloys - chalega , baad mein dekh lenge hai .

the way honda publicised the price initially (7L ex-S, Delhi) and no news abt it further, makes me think that honda has tricked us and might pleasantly surprise us with the pricing tomorrow. Expect 6L ex-S, Delhi or 7L OTR most places

The salesman must be joking 8.25 lakhs is away from the wildest of my dreams. They cant price it that way near the E MT model of ANHC, for it they would have to stop E model of ANHC and make ANHC also a 1 variant car.

Anything above 7.5 lakhs looks steeply overpriced atleast to me, lets wait for 1 more day, 1 member came with 7 OTR and now you came with 8 L OTR. Its very confusing whom to believe. Is your salesman sure? IF YES

i remember when Matiz was first launched, Daewoo had priced it very high. And whenever i use to see a Matiz on road, i use to look at the owner and think what a fool this guy is ...
