Honda is going to launch the Jazz in the premium hatchback segment. This would directly compete with Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Getz.
An international car magazine Top Gear rated Jazz as Number 1 while the Swift was rated at Number 3.
The Jazz is also expected to provide a better mileages than both the Getz and the Swift and will be priced slightly higher.
Honda worldwide carries a reputation of reliability, they are one of the top car manufacturers. The Hondy City has also been very popular in India and people have to wait 2-3 months to get delivery. Their service levels are top notch and the mileage is hard to beat.
Suzuki which was earlier capitalising on the popularity of Swift with a waiting of 6 months is now finally increasing their production. Guess they had to do this once Honda saw an opportunity in this segement.
