The new Jazz was launched on July 8 for a price of INR 5.3 lakhs.

It was reported earlier that Honda had ramped up production to keep up with the demand for the Jazz. This ramp up came at the cost of cutting back production of the Amaze and Mobilio. The adjustment resulted in July sales for Amaze falling from 6,834 units to 4,589 units, while sales of the Mobilio showed a meager decrease from 1,043 units in June to 909 units in July.
