Alas, Honda decided to play the premium price game to cope with a rising Yen and that meant that the Jazz retails between Rs 7.45 to 7.8 lakh. Pricey for a segment which, broadly speaking, also has the Nano and the M-800, right?
The Hyundai i20 is an accomplished car too and features the contemporary 'global Hyundai' look. It was developed as a replacement for the ageing Getz but in India it co-exists with the last generation large-hatchback. A series of engines and options ensure that there is an i20 tailor made for you at the Hyundai dealership and the price tag is typically VFM Hyundai - starting from Rs 5 lakh to a whopping, Jazz rivaling, 8.1 lakh for the automatic version. If you are in the market for a contemporary hatchback chances are that you will end up with one of these machines.
