araje: I have to agree with GTO regarding honda having low end torque, it is the main reason you are having trouble in city driving.
My advise would be
1. when crawling in bumper to bumper traffic keep it 1st and release the clutch just a little bit without revving it to get it moving and once the car is moving you can let go the clutch completely.
2. like gto said rev the car a little before releasing the clutch, after a few weeks you and the car will get used to the driving style. remember these fuel injected cars are very adaptive to the driving style.

It should get better once the car clocks a few kms.

Don't worry about the rev counter, drive by feel, and give the car some more revs; it really sounds that that is what it is asking for. Not doing so will stress your engine and clutch.
Ah... my Logan petrol idles at 500 RPM (five hundred) and it pulls comfortably when i release the clutch cheers:
