No offense Honda fans, but IMO it is nowhere near a sensational "to be continued" kind of advertisement.

No issues with the car to report at the time of first service.
Went for a one day trip to Mysore from Bangalore last weekend with the family.
We did not go above 90kmph and most of the time it was 60 kmph.
For the over all trip the average mileage is 17kmpl. This includes the roaming around in the Mysore city. We visited Mysore palace, Zoo and Brindavan Gardens.
I am happy with the driving experience and the mileage.
Looking forward for more road trips.
Congratulations on your Jazz CVT. 17 Kmpkl with highway and some city driving is really good. Where do you use your car daily? What kind of fuel efficiency are you getting in city traffic?

I am contemplating on an automatic transmission car. Previously I had this bad feeling about CVTs but after reading more about the present day CVTs, I think they make sense, and it would not be wise if I do not consider any of them.

Honda's made a Jazz hot hatch!

https://www.topgear.com/car-news/hot...jazz-hot-hatch

128bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine

Honda should bring this here. From the reviews, it looks like 1.2L is not that great compared to City's 1.5L.

I have owned both. Jazz rides smoother than Swift but does not feel as rugged as Swift on harsh roads. Jazz wants to be pampered all the time.

I found handling bit better on Jazz (may be due to longer wheelbase). But definitely Jazz does not have as much body roll as Swift during sharp turns.

Overall -
Jazz's moto is "Pamper me and you will be pampered back !"
Swift's moto is "Pamper me or torture me, you get same level of service !"

If Honda upgrade to this engine, add features like LED headlights, DRL, Carplay/Android Auto, Push start, auto locking doors etc, add a bit of GC and not price it greedily this would be the hatchback to beat.

But knowing Honda and that WR-V was launched just recently with above features except the engine, I don't see this happening for Jazz in India in near future. May be late 2018 or early 2019 depending on market forces.

Yesterday I test drove the Honda Jazz CVT.

Made sure that TD track had some sections of highway, some traffic dense roads, steep inclines, uneven roads and then some nice, wide and smooth curvy roads.

As I read from most reviews, Jazz CVT gave the most involving drives and the most responsive engine experience, but I am not very impressed with this car after the TD.

During the TD, tried the S mode with manual shift on a straight stretch, floored and shifted but somehow I felt that the acceleration wasn't up to the mark for an 89ps(?) engine. Overall, the peppiness was far from being felt. I know it is a CVT and it will be much different than a manual gearbox or DCT experience but this feeling stays while being totally mindful that it is a CVT.

I was contemplating on getting a petrol automatic in this segment but now it looks like I will drift away to buying a turbo diesel with manual transmission, or may be a DCT.

The only petrol auto that is fun to drive is the Polo GT TSI. Second one is the Figo DCT. The Jazz CVT is a good A-B commuter. As mentioned in our review the paddles are gimmicky and more useful for engine braking.

The most fun of the lot and a good overall package is the Ameo Diesel DSG which is priced well and has a lot of kit with a stonking 110PS diesel engine and 7 speed DSG.

Jazz AT does what's it does best which is silent, reliable, A TO B commuter, one of the most spacious hatchback, with satisfactory performance on highway.

These are the things I wanted and no rattles after 2 years is added bonus.

So if these things tick the right boxes buy the Jazz!!! 👍

A quick question : Which has better structural strength, Jazz or Baleno? Is WRV better than Jazz in this aspect?

We cannot judge structural strength until we see some crash tests. Also the structural strength cannot be judged by the weight of the car or weight of a component (ex: heavy doors).

For example, Toyota Etios has a light build quality but earned 4 stars in NCAP rating.

We don't have a clear idea regarding structural strength in Indian cars. I don't have any high hopes. That said Maruti says Baleno is built with high safety standards as you can see in their brochure.

So the short answer is, we don't have an answer until we see some professional crash tests.
