thanks!

Have been TDing the 3 usual premium hatches, so got to know this about the Jazz.

-Rallye red is now available in all variants.
-All variants have standard 55K discount.
-Additional discounts for Mar/Apr stocks, around 30k more.

Dont know about MH, but road tax went up in KA recently, the lowest Select variant costs 8.9 L here (pre-discount).

cheers

Thanks a lot for that heads up! I only wish they gave a USB port with the select one. Anyway. Thank god that the Red is available on all models. No point in keeping it exclusive only to the X.

Does standard discount is incusive of Jazz X variant? Last week I got a quotation from the dealer and they didn't give me any discount for 'X' variant.

No 55k discount for the X.
However, this is year end, and dealers have sitting stock.
Negotiate and you should get a decent discount (if not 55k).

Are there any sales numbers available for the Jazz? It seems to be an interesting option, but I would not want to buy a car that may be upgraded a month after I buy it or discontinued altogether!

Got a decent quote of 7.75L for the select version today. Need to act fast. My heart is not able to convince my mind to buy the Jazz. But with increasing issues on the i20, I rather be safer.

Any idea if we can run a USB through the aux in port? I will miss that.

^ Select version OTR is coming for 7.5L in Delhi after discount. In Gurgaon it's even better - about 7.1L. I am exactly in the same boat as you. My wallet says go i20, but my brain says too many issues being reported.

I am bummed that the Honda showroom salesman totally messed up the TD - starting from him coming to my house Saturday morning, he kept delaying delaying, and finally Sunday evening he tells me that the car has 'gone for servicing' so TD can't be done this weekend. :(

As for the USB, no there really isn't any way to run it through the Aux Port, so your best option is to either go for the Jazz X (expensive) or to buy a mp3 player to connect to the Aux-In (cheaper). If I go for the car, I am thinking of getting a cigarette lighter adapter to charge my phone through micro-USB and play music off it (i.e. buy a larger memory card), and then I will also have to buy a phone dock so that I can mount it on the dashboard. Hardly a graceful situation. Sucks that Honda didn't just give USB straight up, or at least make the HU replaceable.

Guyz,
USB is the only thing which I miss in my Jazz Select. I am using my phone or Mp3 player to connect to the Aux-in. The HU is capable of reading and playing music from a USb device but Honda is not providing the adapter. I guess the only reason for that is then nobody will buy the Jazz X ( Does anyone buy it ??)

There are adapters available in the US/UK. I will give it a try may be few months down the line.

But other than the USB thingy, it is hard to fault the car. It is such an excellent piece of engineering! So, my sinere advice is - if you can afford it, better to stretch and get the car you want. You will not repent for sure! Last thing you want is to spend a hefty amount and still not be totally happy with your car.

I was in a separate dilemma and I can very well understand the feelings you are going through. I20 beats the Jazz in terms of price and some features, but I20 can't match the Jazz in any other aspect be it space,power,refinement, handling etc.

Best of luck!

Any News from Honda regarding the 1.5 mill?
Another blog mentioned Honda dropping the plans for the 1.5 A/T mill.
Personally that would be one petrol hatch i would love to own(apart from the punto tjet when released)

They definitely had plans for the Jazz 1.5 but I think it is shelved seeing the poor sales of the Jazz. The main reason being people's perception of how can a hatchback be so expensive? So, Honda will definitely not introduce a costlier version of Jazz in near future.
What I expect is a stripped down version of the Jazz in the coming year which will cost 1 to 1.5 lacs cheaper without safety features and some goodies!

Its just not a perception, its a Fact! They are charging a good amount of premium. They could have avoided that by doing their homework better.

I agree that engine is best-in-class and interiors are of good quality but who the hell wants to pay such a big premium for that!

As of now there are hardly any goodies except for a dozen bottle holders. If they strip down more, it will become like a powerful Alto. Heck, even Alto is powerful now!

A Jazz with all goodies at 7L On road in Bangy, then Jazz will be my first choice among Petrol cars.

I don't intend to debate on this, just it was my point of view.

Dude, don't get so excited! Not good for health.

Yes, people do think it is overpriced but some fools like me don't think it is but I know I am in the minority

And if you go through this thread, there are pages and pages of Honda bashing for pricing the jazz so high. I don't think we really need another post echoing the same thing!

Overpriced can't never be a fact. What appears overpriced to someone, may not be the same with someone else.

I don't know what you mean by goodies but jazz Select is more loaded than a Swift/Polo/Figo etc but I20 and Punto beats it hands down in features.

Bottomline is - Most of the Jazz owners including yours truly are very happy with the car and feels it is very much worth the money! At the end of the day, that's what matters - you want a car which brings a smile to your face always

Adi, I doubt a stripped down version of the Jazz is coming. More so with the announcement of the Brio coming in soon at 5 lakhs. Depending on how good or bad Brio is 1 will eat into the sales of the other, ie. Brio & stripped down Jazz. I don't think Honda would want to see that happen.

I think the whole world agrees that the Jazz is overpriced for most people's mindset & calculations. You are +1 to that group. I respect that, so no point debating the mindset.

However I read so many initial reviews of many hatches & read of so many issues that owners face owing to a bad/sub-standard manufacturing job. Yet on the Jazz threads here I hardly read about any significant issue anyone has faced. My ownership has crossed 1yr now & not a problem I can blame Honda for. It's truely a Fill it - Shut it - Forget it car for me

I think this itself more than justifies for half of the extra price to me atleast. The remaining I have already saved transporting the amount of things I have without having to hire a Tata Ace or alike since the Jazz can just gulp down luggage, etc with amazing finesse.
