Thanks a lot! Iíve always wanted to put up an ownership thread on here so perhaps Iíll try to do that

And itís a relief to hear that the colour looks beautiful on the car. Not many takers for a bright shade around here so I was a bit concerned about it looking too wacky for Indian society

That's the beauty of it. Not many go in for the red colour so it stands out quite a bit. After I bought it a year ago, I have literally see 3 other radiant red cars on the road. The metallic flecks are so much more visible in the sun. Looks awesome.

Attachment 2047082

Iím from Mumbai, so the on road prices offered tentatively were 10L, 11L, and 11.5L respectively.

After reading reviews from Blackasta, GKM sir and a host of others here, Iíve decided to go for the CVT as it best suits my driving style. Itís the first car in my family, and since the ladies wanted a sunroof, Iíll be going for the top ZX trim despite the premium.

Hope this helps!
Are they at least offering new colours??

Asking for a friend:

Real life & unbiased figures please.
A Jazz owner since 2015, my take on the real time figure for City driving is, whatever you do, FE is not going north of 14.5. I got a max of 14.3 when the MID was showing close to 14.9. Add a bit of aggression, you are gonna see 11-12.5 kmpl very easily.
On the highway, cruising at 100-110 kmph, it stays close to 18.xx whereas the MID displays 19+.
On a mixed basis, the car will give you 17+ with full AC, kept at 26 degrees.
However, do not assume it to be the ideal case, in bumper to bumper traffic, my guess is not more than 11 kmpl.

I get around 13-14 kmpl in city with A/C on 70-80% of the time in Hyderabad. Highways, I drive in same range of 90-110, and I have got around 16-16.5 kmpl in my drives to Bangalore

The new Honda Jazz page has been updated with more details - https://www.hondacarindia.com/honda-jazz

It is now showing available colour options, has a link to the brochure and so on. Here's a picture of the available colours. The pricing is yet to be out, here's hoping they don't go overboard.

Honda has launched the updated Jazz, with prices starting at Rs 7.50 lakh. Apart from subtle cosmetic tweaks and some new features, the hatchback gains a BS6-compliant petrol engine with this update. The BS6 Jazz is a petrol-only model and is available in three variants Ė V, VX and an all-new ZX trim.

A lot of people in this thread have earlier expressed hope for price correct by Honda, well, their wishes went unheard. The prices for V and VX variant seem to have largely been kept the same, with ZX commanding a significant premium. To add insult to the injury, they seem to have removed the fog lamps on V and VX in favour of a DRL. That doesn't seem to sit well with me, fog lamps surely have more utility than a DRL, no? Could we possibly fit fog lamps in place of DRLs? Doesn't seem like it can be done from the design of it.

Currently from the segment, my current pick would be Jazz, while its my second or third choice (compromise/settlement) from the segment.
  • I love the Figo but Jazz is definitely plusher and spacious on the inside.
  • Altroz is attractive but the engine is not
  • Baleno is too light build
  • i20 currently on sale is old enough and newer one is underway. This version of Jazz will stay for sometime.

But then, the pricing kills everything. Its in Ecosport-Nexon-Rapid category with although reliable but an engine for which about 8-9 Lacs on road would have been a justified price on road perhaps but not 10+.

I badly wished Jazz sales to pick up because its a competent product.

Hope the JackKnife key, Chrome ring on steering controls are the features well worth its premium pricing

The pricing is disappointing - in times when one can buy a Rapid Tsi for 7.49L ex showroom Bangalore, why should someone look at Jazz from a value perspective?

They should have at least given the 1.5 petrol from City.

Given the price of the Amaze, there wasn't any room for a price correction in Jazz, which is a superior product comparatively (of course, I am disappointed nevertheless). Instead of the 1.5 being suggested, I'd say they should bring in their 1.0 tsi. Without the tax advantage the 1.5 will make it ridiculously high priced. What's really disappointing is that they haven't done anything at all to justify this break of 4 months.

Thanks for the video.

So Wow, My 2015 model Jazz is not getting old and its going to be hard for the not so trained eyes to differentiate the All New Jazz and the version I have. Clean, polish, put a plastic sheet on the back seat and tie a ribbon, you have the all new Jazz. Neighbors envy, unless you have a bhpian

IMHO, companies has to learn from Honda on how to spend few hundred bucks to generate an all new version. The only tough job they had is to insert a chrome ring around the steering controls. Rest is from the left over stock of the previous gen city. I'm relieved.

Premium Pricing as always and Honda never disappoints us here.

Strong advice for the buyers, go get the Nexon.

You bring up a good point regarding tax brackets based on the engine capacity, as stupid as they are, companies cannot ignore that. Similarly, unless Honda localises the engine, importing it would carry significant cost. For them to localise it, they've to feel they need it in large numbers for other cars or some kind of Honda 2.0 strategy to grow in India. That doesn't seem to be on the cards for Honda.

Too bad, Honda's offerings are just my kind of thing, almost in every segment.
