Default re: Which AT? Amaze vs Jazz vs Micra vs pre-owned ones. EDIT: Booked Jazz VX CVT

The Amaze is newer but Jazz just looks and feels more premium. I myself had walked into a Honda showroom with the intention of purchasing the Jazz but ended up buying the City instead. I would recommend the Jazz CVT. Super smooth, refined and easy to drive with oodles of space. Hondas tend to be reliable and the service shouldn't be an issue. An AMT at this price point won't make sense and I am not too sure about DCTs reliability so wouldn't comment on the Venue.

bravo82in, I think you cant go wrong between the Amaze and the Jazz. On the Jazz review thread, TBHPian Vishfull mentioned that he got a Rs 45,000 discount on his Jazz recently. So the Jazz might end up being cheaper on the road as compared to the Amaze.

However, do check on the service intervals for the two. I think the Jazz has a 6 month service interval while the Amaze comes with a 12 month service interval for the same engine. In that case, you will end up paying more for service with the Jazz though the cash discounts will nullify this.

A few years ago, I bought the Jazz CVT with a similar plan as my wife wanted to drive to work. The car is almost at 28,000 kms and I will admit, its a perfect fill it, shut it, forget it Honda.

My neighbour in India loves his Brio AT. If you're open to used cars, you should try looking out for one. You'll save a lot from your 8 lakh budget.

Otherwise, you can't go wrong with Baleno, Glanza, Jazz or Amaze.

Tell me about it. Got an earful from mom while buying my first car in a different country.

My requirements are
Any specific reason for not having the Hyundai i10 Grand in the list? With the sales slowing down and the launch of new i10 Grand nearing, the current ones can be had with a good discount. We're replacing our FIL's 2005 Alto with the current i10 Grand, Delivery is scheduled for the first week of August. I would suggest checking for discounts at the Hyundai showrooms.

Update: Just read one of your reply about rejecting the i10 Grand based on the looks. However, please do check it out as the discounts might be tempting. :-)

Hi all. I am myself in the same dilemna. I have been shopping for a second car for daily use-a compact but premium city car with good build quality, decent features, good ride quality and small turning circle. (I have to take a killer U turn 2-3 times a day in heavy traffic).I want a hassle free ownership experience and plan to keep the car for at least 6-8 years.
I have test driven the venue, ecosport , polo gt tsi. I saw the baleno, i 20, I 10 , aspire too.None of them fit the bill perfectly.
I have finally narrowed it down to between the jazz cvt and amze cvt vx. The jazz sheet metal and door thud and interiors plastic feel a bit more premium than the amaze. But the amaze feels more peppier due to its lesser weight and more nimble in traffic due to better visibility with a very compact turning circle. My friends and family suggest the jazz for its more upmarket image and premium feel over the amaze, while I feel the amaze is more easier to drive in city traffic.

Amaze leg space in rear is the size of a peanut when compared to a Jazz rear leg room - even with front seats pushed all way back.

Not sure of Amaze FE, but our Jazz gives about 7 kmpl in Kochi city - it has done 1250 km so far. It goes up, upto 12 - 13 km on highways.

Hope this will give you more reasons to chew on.

Do compare the wheel and tyre sizes too.

The Amaze frankly is not that great. It is one of those built-for-India-dicky-mad-person cars. But the new one looks better than the older one for sure.
Its also almost as large in appearance as the earlier Dolphin nose City. Yet, this segment just does not appeal to me personally.

The Jazz however, IS a far more practical, versatile and value package. And it is relatively rarer and more premium for sure.

The only thing I dont like is the fact that the CVT AT cries a bit when pushed up a gradient while overtaking.

But it is a super City commuter for sure!

If I were you, I would buy a Jazz.

S mode and paddle shifts will reduce that irritant.

Seems new jazz is going to be launched next mid year in india. It might come with the sportier turbo petrol variant. And civic like interiors and features.

S Mode is also there in my Dad's Glanza.
All that it does is to hold a lower gear for slightly longer. Yes it is a great car in many ways and cery easy to drive and use in the city etc but all said and done these Glanzas and Jazz's etc are not enthusiasts cars.
They are good quality pretty plush and comfy functional city commuters at best.

No doubt jazz is a more premium and better built car than the amaze. I am going ahead and booking it. I think i can live with the slightly larger(1.2 feet) turning radius.
