Default New Honda hatchback

I'm planning to buy a car within a month or 2.
Recently I've read and seen on TV (do not remember the exact source) about the launch of a hatchback by Honda.
It was supposed to be in the first quarter of 2006.

Does anyone have any more info on this ?
The expected month of launch,
The approx power,
Expected cost,
Features,
Colors,
etc.

Thanks.

As far as I had read in ACI, Honda is planning on a hatchback, but they say it will not happen till 2008. I guess it is still a long way to go. Even the Toyota hatchback will take another year or two to materialize I believe.

if honda launches a hatch this year it'll be the jazz ...
which is the bootless NHC ..nothless much better to look at ...
but i dbout they take a shot at that especially with the Swift dominating the sales followed by Getz with their crazy pricing potential..

There is a strong Buzz that the Jazz will be there in the next year's Auto Expo ..to be held between 12 and 17th of Jan 2006.

IMHO , I dont think its coming before 2007.

The Honda guys will probably display it to gauge the indian consumers reaction to it .
