Then a fully loaded Jazz for another extra lac. I hope Jazz fails. I think the i20's and the GP's will surely give a kick on the backside to the Jazz.

The 1.2L and 1.5L here refers to Lakhs right? See what Honda's pricing startegy is doing to me!

well, lets see -

Jazz (7.5 lac) + 1.5 Litre engine excise duty (1.5 lac) + auto tranny (1 lac) = 10 lac


In case someone is very KEEN on buying a HATCHBACK ONLY, to put things in perspective, throw in a couple more lacs and this is what you might get -

Hmmm, I agree that the 1.5 will attract a higher excise than the 1.2, but then Honda did not pass on the advantage of lower excise to buyers of the 1.2, did it?

So, It appears to me that Honda is trying to price its products at the maximum possible price that the market is willing to pay. Not sure if you can call it avarice, but these rates definitely take it outside my budget for a hatch.

However, I guess the Indian consumer is lapping it up even at these prices. I've already seen 5 registered Honda Jazz cars while on my way to work today. Damn, I must be grossly underpaid.

Complicates matters for Honda completely, launching a 1.5 Jazz, wouldn't it? A hatch at the price of its entry level sedan, now who will buy what! I guess if at all they launch the 1.5, it might mean a price cut for the 1.2 and 1.5 comes at the current 1.2 jazz price. Which means a lot of people who were Honda faithfuls (read the present crop of buyers for the Jazz), would feel cheated, like the civic hybrid customers would've felt.

Price cut within a month? I doubt that. No manufacturer would do such a thing. Its more likely that they'll launch it and price it bang in City territory.

Cartradeindia is speaking rubbish. I doubt the Jazz 1.5 will ever come. The 1.2 is overpriced, despite excise benefits for the small petrol. A 10 lakh rupee 1.5 liter hatch? I don't think so.

Honda is already digging a pit with the Jazz pricing. IF they are to release a 1.5, they will be digging themselves a grave and with an earth-mover.

Even the current Autocar (July edition) talks about a possible launch in 2010 (page 43). However they have been contemplating a Fiesta 1.6 TDCi since ages.

Ideally speaking a hatchback shouldn't cost too less to manufacture in comparison to its corresponding sedan. The price differences that we usually see are mainly due to differences in tax structures and some market positioning done by the manufacturers.

Probably the 1.5 is the IDSI engine that did the duty on the NHC?

Amazing forum is this. Isn't it? A car is just launched with 1.2L engine & people have already started about talking 1.5L engine.
