  1. Correct the automatic price in first paragraph states 6.6 lakhs. Also wont the CVT version eat into jazz CVT share as both are similarly priced. I love Jazz especially the paddle shifters. Amaze will definitely create a dent on Maruti and Hyundai sales.

  2. Made the necessary corrections, thanks for pointing out the error. It shouldn’t cannibalize Jazz, if you consider that most of the compact sedan buyers have already ignored the similarly priced hatchbacks.
