Not practicality,thats called being RICH

Yes,I had TD-er this car and the thing that most amazed me was the roominess.Interior plastics are not that great but you can live with it.

Overall,a very good car for city driving.Enjoy

Beautiful pics, and it looks really nice in white. I just wish Honda offers more kit as standard.

Could you possibly post some more pics of the interiors? Is leather an option? how good/bad is the OEM ICE?

Commendably honest. I think that a lot of the anti Honda sentiment here is just a case of sour grapes.

Further updates on high way fuel efficiency.
-----------------------------------------------

Tried to measure fuel efficiency on a 160 Km drive on highway with A/C full time on. Got 16.1 Kmpl. Measurement was full tank to full tank. Allow some margin since the distance is less.

Then further did a 300 Km stretch, 70%highway and 30% city. Got 15.8 Kmpl.
(Both measurements full tank to full tank).

So overall fuel efficiency seems to be excellent.

Highway driving.
------------------
Around 100 KM were hilly roads, with lot of curves. Felt the lack of low end torque a bit annoying on these roads. However, once you downshift it is fine. The rest were
straight roads, where I could cruise comfortably.

In a car like this, for the way it is meant to be used, the FE you get is a direct measurement of your driving skills. The smoother and refined you are, the more kilometres you will get to a liter. Other things like traffic and weather conditions remaining constant of course.

Brilliant colors!

From the picture, there is not much of a difference between the height of the two cars - CRV and Jazz. But there's definitely a difference in ground clearance.

How is the Jazz seating? Is it tall-boy seating (you sit high up and can see almost your complete hood), or is it low seating like a typical sedan?

Jazz gives you such a rich and vibrant feeling once you are inside it , difficult to describe actually Honda City look downmarket in comparison . Interiors are simply to die for

More like a sedan. But seating is not low. I found almost same as ANHC.
